More specifically, I have installled XPACK on ElasticSearch. Looking at a few posts, I guess I got muddled since some people have claimed that Kibana will use ElasticSearch's XPACK for security(for example, user names) and if XPACK is installed on ES, Kibana can leverage those same security credentials in ElasticSearch. (I dont; want to use the default kibana username and password that we configure in the Kibana.yml - rather use the security i define in ElasticSearch).
- So, would I need to install XPACK separately in Kibana if ElasticSearch has XPACK installed?
- If yes, does the licensing costs change if kibana also needs to install XPACK?
