How to transfer users from an Elastic Cluster to another one

Hey everyone!

I need to copy the users and roles from an Elastic cluster 7.9 to a new 8.3.2 cluster. Is there a way to do that?

Recreating manually is not possible since we have hundreds of users configured and most of the cases, only the users know their credentials (so I just can not ask for that).

Thank you!

Create a snapshot | Elasticsearch Guide [8.7] | Elastic should be what you are after.

Hey mate! That is a cool feature but I am about to copy from a 7.9 cluster, which version does not include this type of feature backup.

Is there any way to do something similar to that in 7.9?


Ahh sorry. You would need to take a snapshot of the .security index and then restore that.
