403 Error when using out-of-the-box ElasticSearch 5.0.0-alpha5

Hi, we're evaluating ElasticSearch and Kibana. I have recently downloaded elasticsearch-5.0.0-alpha5 and kibana-5.0.0-alpha5-windows-86.

When performing a get operation authenticating with the default username\pwd, I get the following error

{"error":{"root_cause":[{"type":"security_exception","reason":"action [indices:admin/get] is unauthorized for user [kibana]"}],"type":"security_exception","reason":"action [indices:admin/get] is unauthorized for user [kibana]"},"status":403}

I can also login to Kibana using the default username\pwd, however, this login does not have permissions to manage users\roles.

Could someone offer some advice or direct me towards some documentation which would explain why this is happening?
