Help with Securing Kibana

They say the only "stupid" questions are the ones un asked. I feel like I should be able to figure this out but maybe I have some fundamental misunderstanding about how this is "supposed" to work.

I have a Test machine set up and it works with the
elasticsearch.username: kibana
elasticsearch.password: 'kibana password'

I thought I could set a system variable in the elasticsearch keystore, something like 'kibana.password' This threw an error in the Java log. Is there something else I need to do to be able to call the username and password in the .yml file. something like
elasticsearch.password: ${kibana.password}

Thanks for any help.
