X pack update license

Hi team,

While updating xpack license, i can see bewlo warning message as graph and other components will be disabled.

C:\Program Files\cURL\bin>curl.exe -XPUT -u elastic:changeme "http://bngwidap108
.aonnet.aon.net:9200/_xpack/license" -d @license.json
{"acknowledged":false,"license_status":"valid","acknowledge":{"message":"This li
cense update requires acknowledgement. To acknowledge the license, please read t
he following messages and update the license again, this time with the "acknowl
edge=true" parameter:","watcher":["Watcher will be disabled"],"security":["The

C:\Program Files\cURL\bin>

please let us know how do we update license without being disabling the other components.

The basic license only enables the free features in x-pack. The other features are paid features and will require a subscription.


I do not fully understand your problem. If you only got a basic license, then watcher, security and graph will be disabled - those features are only enabled for subscription customers, who get their own licenses.

The trial license (which has all of those features enabled) is only valid for 30 days though, then parts of those features will be disabled as well.

Hope this helps.


thanks for the information. yes as per the product POC, cant we get a extended trail version which includes all components
where we can see the product properly and future use in our production environment.


feel free to contact sales@elastic.co anytime for those enquiries. Someone will get back to you!
