Can I provide access to the user to change his password?


(Vikas Gopal) #1

Hi Experts,

I have installed ES shield and Shield for kibana for testing purpose. Is it possible that user can change his password of it's own from kibana browser itself. I know this is something which is not available in kiaban , but any alternative to this would be really appreciated .

This feature is something which most of the tools provides , like change password on first logon etc.

Please advice


How can users be allowed change their own passwords only, not everyone's?

Starting with version 5.0, users can change their password via the API and in the Kibana UI.

Thank you @jaymode that is a good news so do we have stable 5.0 release ?

Not yet. We are working very hard to finish up 5.0. You can give the latest release a try if you'd like

another quick question , so do I need x-pack security plugin for all this or just shield will work ?
