Since it is part of our public documentation, I will just put the link here. Sorry if I am just not seeing the feature that allows sending personal messages.

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/x-pack/current/setting-up-authentication.html#built-in-users

After installing X-Pack you get these default users. You MUST change those passwords ASAP after the install.

Little Help

Just set up X -pack not sure how to reset password tried all the following steps but no luck
not sure what isManagement > Users UI in Kibana or with the Reset Password API:
just installed X-pack and got in to issue

[root@quik-cclab38-01e kibana]# POST _xpack/security/rguttu/elastic/_password
Please enter content (application/x-www-form-urlencoded) to be POSTed:

"Management > Users UI in Kibana" refers to this page in Kibana:

Click Management on the left-side navigation bar, then click "Users" which is under the "Elasticsearch" section, then click one of the users to find the "Change Password" button.

No luck to do that reason as soon as I installed x-pack my kibana started promoting credentials

Please ignore my typo


(Tim Sullivan) #7

Did you install X-Pack into Kibana using the Kibana installer as well?

bin/kibana-plugin install x-pack

Hello @tsullivan when i try to install x-path plugin i get following errror Plugin installation was unsuccessful due to error eperm: operation not permitted, rename "C:\elasticshearh\kibana\plugins\.plugin.installing" -> C:\elasticshearh\kibana\plugins\x-pack
Any advice hot to troubleshoot it? running on windows


(Okonon) #11

I was able to figure out the issue. Turns out McAfee was blocking the install. So to avoid above error disable McAfee before install.
Thanks
