What is it

Elasticsearch offers various licenses with different sets of features, ranging from Open Source Basic, Gold, Platinum and Enterprise. The default is set to basic. The basic license is a forever free plan but lacks many advanced x-pack features, such as alerts and advanced security. The following parameter is used inside elaticsearch.yml file to set a license type:

xpack.license.self_generated.type: basic
