I was following your tutorial on elk while it installs fine is there an option with X-pack at least basic auth enabled version?

Thanks

Hi and thank you for checking out our tutorial on setting up an EFK stack on Kubernetes!!

By default for basic and trial licenses, X-Pack security features are disabled. You can enable them by setting the xpack.security.enabled parameter to true in the env section of the elasticsearch_statefulset.yaml file. Note that if you enable security features for Elasticsearch, you may need to configure additional security parameters for Kibana and Fluentd as well.

Here are some resources that may be helpful:
