Will the X-Pack role-based access control be available after the expiration date?

This is what i found in the X-Pack documentation about the functionality that won't be available after the expiration date. But it's not clear if the role-based access control will be available or not.

License [will expire] on [Friday, December 30, 2016]. If you have a new license, please update it.
Otherwise, please reach out to your support contact.

Commercial plugins operate with reduced functionality on license expiration:

  • security
  • Cluster health, cluster stats and indices stats operations are blocked
  • All data operations (read and write) continue to work
  • watcher
  • PUT / GET watch APIs are disabled, DELETE watch API continues to work
  • Watches execute and write to the history
  • The actions of the watches don't execute
  • monitoring
  • The agent will stop collecting cluster and indices metrics
  • The agent will stop automatically cleaning indices older than [xpack.monitoring.history.duration]
  • graph
  • Graph explore APIs are disabled

No, role based security is not functional once your license expires.
