Cannot change kibana user roles also cannot create new user with admin like roles.!

@Swaroop_Chandre the kibana user is what the Kibana server runs as and uses to authenticate itself with Elasticsearch, it's not meant for you to be logging in with.

You'll likely want to use the elastic built-in superuser to create a new user that has the kibana_user and ingest_admin roles.

@Brandon_Kobel but how do I proceed from here? As kibana user is not privileged to add or create user. Which are other default user so that I can create new user and manage roles with admin like rights.
