Is it possible to disable authentication

My Elasticsearch Cluster does not need any authentication. Is it possible to disable it in your app?

Hello sebastian1,

Yes, you can disable the authentication by editing the inputs.conf and set the user and secret as blank.


date_field_name = timestamp
elasticsearch_indice = esindex
elasticsearch_instance_url = http://eshost
greater_or_equal = 2019-01-01
index = esh_index
interval = 60
lower_or_equal = now
port = 9200
use_ssl = False
verify_certs = False
user =
secret =
sourcetype = elasticsearch

Thank you.
