Log Context

Log “Security tokens are not available under the current [{}] license” classname is TokenBaseRestHandler.java.
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

         if (failedFeature != null) {
            return failedFeature;
        } else if (licenseState.isTokenServiceAllowed()) {
            return null;
        } else {
            logger.info("Security tokens are not available under the current [{}] license"; licenseState.getOperationMode().description());
            return LicenseUtils.newComplianceException("security tokens");
        }
    }
}
