elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token command creates enrollment tokens for
Elasticsearch nodes and Kibana instances.
bin/elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token [-f, --force] [-h, --help] [-E <KeyValuePair>] [-s, --scope] [--url]
elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token can only be used with Elasticsearch clusters
that have been auto-configured for security.
Use this command to create enrollment tokens, which you can use to enroll new Elasticsearch nodes to an existing cluster or configure Kibana instances to communicate with an existing Elasticsearch cluster that has security features enabled. The command generates (and subsequently removes) a temporary user in the file realm to run the request that creates enrollment tokens.
You cannot use this tool if the file realm is disabled in your
This command uses an HTTP connection to connect to the cluster and run the user
management requests. The command automatically attempts to establish the connection
over HTTPS by using the
xpack.security.http.ssl settings in
elasticsearch.yml file. If you do not use the default configuration directory,
ensure that the
ES_PATH_CONF environment variable returns the
correct path before you run the
elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token command. You can
override settings in your
elasticsearch.yml file by using the
option. For more information about debugging connection failures, see

- Configures a standard Elasticsearch or X-Pack setting.
- Forces the command to run against an unhealthy cluster.
- Returns all of the command parameters.
Specifies the scope of the generated token. Supported values are
Specifies the base URL (hostname and port of the local node) that the tool uses to submit API
requests to Elasticsearch. The default value is determined from the settings in your
xpack.security.http.ssl.enabledis set to
true, you must specify an HTTPS URL.
The following command creates an enrollment token for enrolling an Elasticsearch node into a cluster:
bin/elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token -s node
The following command creates an enrollment token for enrolling a Kibana instance into a cluster. The specified URL indicates where the elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token tool attempts to reach the local Elasticsearch node:
bin/elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token -s kibana --url "https://126.96.36.199:9200"
