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.
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 https://www.elastic.co/blog/elastic-stack-release-5-0-0-alpha-5
another quick question , so do I need x-pack security plugin for all this or just shield will work ?
