Missing authentication details for REST request

Hi all,

I have been configuring minimal security of the Elastic Stack and unfortunately I am unable to run Kibana as it throws this error:

log [14:40:45.047] [error][savedobjects-service] Unable to retrieve version information from Elasticsearch nodes. security_exception: [security_exception] Reason: missing authentication credentials for REST request [/_nodes?filter_path=nodes..version%2Cnodes..http.publish_address%2Cnodes.*.ip]

Any help would be appreciated as I am still new to the stack!


Hi @Molly_Fraser

Have you correctly defined the following settings in your config/kibana.yml file?

elasticsearch.username: "kibana_system"
elasticsearch.password: "<password-defined-in-elasticsearch-for-kibana_system>"
