x-pack package in ELK version 5.1.2 release is not free.It comes with 30 days trial version. I heard that the x-pack package for the 6.4.1 release is free. Is that correct or we just get 30 days free trial version with 6.4.1
The default distribution of Elasticsearch includes all of X-Pack, but the default license is "basic".
You can activate a free trial of the commercial features via Kibana (Management -> License) or via the API.
Can i use Xpack on version 6.3. Is it free?
Thank you for your consideration.
X-Pack has a number of features, that require different license levels.
On 6.3 (or 6.4), you can
- Use some of the X-Pack features under the default, free, "basic" license that never expires.
- Use all of the X-Pack features free for 30 days under the "trial" license.
- Purchase a Gold or Platinum subscription to obtain ongoing access to commercial features.
- Download versions of Elasticsearch & Kibana that do not have X-Pack installed (OSS versions)
Okay, I see
Thank you Tim.
On 6.2 X-Pack is 100% free? Right?
No, X-Pack has never been free, but it does have a free tier license.
The way that license works changed in 6.3, which is why I referred to that version in my answer, but most features in X-Pack require, and have always required, a paid license.
Okay, I see
Thank you Tim
