Questions about Settings in elasticsearch.yml


I have a question about the configuration in elasticsearch.yml.

I would like to know the meaning of searchguard.allow_default_init_sgindex: true and searchguard.check_snapshot_restore_write_privileges: true.

Additionally, I’m curious if there is any documentation providing a general explanation of the settings in elasticsearch.yml.

Thank you.

@dafq As per documentation

searchguard.check_snapshot_restore_write_privileges: true is an option that enables restoring snapshots.

When searchguard.allow_default_init_sgindex is set to true, then the Search Guard index is initialized at the first Elasticsearch startup if such an index doesn’t exist. When the option is set to false, the Search Guard index must be initialized with tool.

Thank you so much. It helped a lot.
