I've been using Shield for some time, and it works fine. Now I'm trying to use the Kibana Sense plugin and running into trouble with it. Lately I've been running some fairly complex curl commands, and Sense should make things easier, if only I can get it to run.
With a basic curl command, Shield requires that I define a username with the -u flag, i.e. "curl -u -XPUT 'https://hostname:9200..." But I can't figure out how to specify the username with Sense. If I'm logged in to Kibana as a disallowed user, and I define the server as https://hostname:9200, and the enter the command "PUT ", it responds "action [cluster:admin/watcher/watch/put] is unauthorized for user ".
Is there a way to define the user in Sense, or do I need to log in as whatever user I'm running the curl command as?
