Reset admin password for Kibana


(Robert) #1

Hi,
I'm locked out of the admin page for our Kibana instance. I have a root shell on the box and can access all configurations. How do I go about resetting the admin password, so I can login to Kibana as admin? I can authenticate as kibana user, but I get this message when I try to manager users, "You do not have permission to manage users."

You can use the file realm to add a temporary user that has the superuser role. You can then use this user to reset the password for the elastic user.

Thank you. That worked.
