We are running ELK stack as containers managed by docker-compose as part of our software package.
We seek a free alternative to elastic x-pack. ReadonlyREST seemed like a deal but when I follow the guide here https://readonlyrest.com/blog/insights/set-up-local-secured-elk-stack/
I am unable to get the plugin for elasticsearch running.
I install the plugin into the elastic container, mount the readonlyrest.yml to /usr/share/elasticsearch/config/readonlyrest.yml, restart the docker-compose but it seems to have no effect (eg. i can curl -vvv “http://localhost:9200/_cat/indices” without auth. error).
Is it because we are using oss version? For example, we cannot set xpack.security.enabled: false as xpack is not present.
