CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)
I have the lastest version of the kibana installed from the elasticsearch repo by yum:
When I try to install a plugin:
/usr/share/kibana/bin/kibana-plugin install $url
Kibana should not be run as root. Use --allow-root to continue.
Ok, trying the more secure way:
su -c '/usr/share/kibana/bin/kibana-plugin install $url' kibana
This account is currently not available.
I know the web application with root owner on files is the gift for hackers and pentesters.
So what is the right (recommended) way to install kibana plugins if the kibana user cant be used?
