How to make Kibana a superuser


(Sunil Chaudhari) #1

I installed x-pack for Kibana as well as Elasticsearch.
However, I cant see data using kibana user. But I can see it using elastic user when logged in Kibana

I can see kibana has kibana_system role. How can I change that? its not editable. Its reserved.

br,
Sunil.

HI ,
A user can be linked to multiple roles, so you can create a new role that provides access to you indices and then grant this and the kibana role to the user. This allows you to give different users access to different data sets with a small number of roles. Kibana_system role is a reserved role and hence not editable.

Can you paste all the roles and associated privileges to debug further ?
