Hide APM settings when in managed mode. Hide APM user settings when APM is in managed mode as user settings are not supported.
Disable logging and metrics warnings on downscaled topologies. Improve observability configuration check alerting reducing the number of false positives on detected wrong configurations.
Remove obsolete proxy settings from internal models. The proxy settings APIs have been deprecated because these settings were no longer used. The API endpoints still exist, but will not update or return actual settings anymore. In addition, the Adminconsole no longer takes the
expected_proxies_count setting into account when it determines the overall proxies health.
Comment out updating enable disk allocation setting. You can no longer disable disk-based shard allocation through the plan. If you need to do so, you can do it directly through the Elasticsearch cluster settings API.
Update 6.8 upgrade documentation to indicate EOL. We’ve updated the Elastic Stack version 6.x upgrade instructions to indicate that version has reached the EOL date. If you are running this version, we recommend you to upgrade your deployment to a more current version of the Elastic stack.
