Could not configure kibana verification code in Kibana version 8.3.3

I started the Kibana where it required enrollment token. Once i filled in the enrollment token from running the elastic bin with this path " /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token ", then it also required the 6 digits of kibana verification code.

But it shows " couldn't write to configure file and Check the file permissions and ensure kibana.yml is writable by the Kibana process. " How can i grant the permission to kibana.yml?

Thank you


How are you installing in docker? What kinda user are you?

Hi @bhavyarm . I installed elastic and kibana from official image using docker-compose. And the user in the yml file is elastic by default (the superuser role)

Hello, you need to change the ownership of the files to the kibana:kibana user.
