Kibana LDAP authentication Realm problem


I would like to integrate Kibana with LDAP authentication, I followed the xpack realm configuration from official documentation but its throwing following error. Can some one help me by sharing kibana.yml with working LDAP Realm configuration.

FATAL { ValidationError: child "xpack" fails because [child "security" fails because ["authc" is not allowed]]

Complete log

@ashok_n the settings should be specified in your elasticsearch.yml instead of your kibana.yml.


@Brandon_Kobel Thank you very much, it worked.
