For debugging purposes, you might want to temporarily prevent ECK from modifying Kubernetes resources belonging to a particular Elastic Stack resource. To do this, annotate the Elastic object with
eck.k8s.elastic.co/managed=false. This annotation can be added to any of the following types of objects:
metadata: annotations: eck.k8s.elastic.co/managed: "false"
Or in one line:
kubectl annotate elasticsearch quickstart --overwrite eck.k8s.elastic.co/managed=false
