Certificate reloading?

Does the security plugin reload certificates for transport or REST?

If not, what’s the best way to trigger a reload? Anything short of restarting elasticsearch?

Hi Josh - did you see this blog that just got published?

See if that answers your questions - my understanding is that it does require a restart. We had been looking at hot-reloading as we have been thinking about it for the service. If you (and others) are also interested hot reloading feel free to open an issue so we can prioritize it.


@joshbenner I know this is an old thread, but hot reloading should be able to do what you were looking for - further details here
