Kibana error: not allowed to use elastic user

The error is:
"[config validation of [Elasticsearch].username]: value of "elastic" is forbidden. This is a superuser account that cannot write to system indices that Kibana needs to function"...
I tried making a new user with superuser permissions; but upon entering Kibana, all 'loading circles' I came across were not moving, and no data could be loaded.
Then I tried using service account token authentication in the kibana.yml for the user 'elastic' but in the documentation it says that it is a subscription feature.
Is there a way I can solve this without buying a subscription?

You don't need to specify a user if you are using service account token.

If you want to use a username and password, use kibana_system instead.
