Could not find required attribute 'readonlyrest'

(Shota) #1

Hi I have ES with readonlyrest plugin, it works without ldap configuration, but when I write configuration for my active directory elasticsearch does not start and gives an error:

2018-05-01 11:45:03 Commons Daemon procrun stderr initialized

at tech.beshu.ror.commons.settings.RawSettings.req(

Hello @shota!

I just fixed this. What ES version do you use?

(Shota) #3

I use 6.2.2 version of ES
thank you for reply

OK in that version you should not have the issue I fixed. That makes me think that above that error(s) there will be something about the YAML syntax.

Look at the very beginning, as there will be a long chain of errors due to the multiple attempts.

also try to run yamllint against the file, it will report errors in the yaml. You can ignore the errors about long lines, as ROR do work fine with those.
