Enable control access to user in Kibana 8


I have recently installed and configured the ELK architecture on three different linux servers.

The configuration that has been implemented is the one that comes by default.

Right now, I'm at the point where I need to enable basic authentication to add users, roles, and data access control via Kibana.

I have read that basic authentication is enabled by default in ELK. The version that I have installed is version 8.1, and I have reviewed both official and unofficial documentation, and I cannot enable the user control, which I understand to be the native Kibana login screen.

On another machine I have installed the three ELK services, in version 7, and I have enabled the xpack according to the documentation, and the front-end has been activated where it asks me for a username and password and internally in Kibana I can manage users, roles and Access permits.

What do I have to do to make this work in version 8.1 of ELK?

Thank you very much in advance.

What documentation did you follow?
