Kibana.yml elasticsearch.username: kibana_system or elastic


Doc here says to use the 'elastic' user in kibana.yml whereas the default configuration and this doc say to use 'kibana_system' user.

Which one should I use ?

I've used "kibana" and "elastic"

User "kibana" seems to be replaced by "kibana_system". I found this :

It should be kibana_system. I'll get the incorrect doc updated.

Thanks @TimV -- the documentation is now updated to reflect the kibana_system user: Set up minimal security for Elasticsearch | Elasticsearch Guide [7.12] | Elastic
