Rest API (Authenticate, Change Password)


I have created new user in Kibana (superuser) and I would like to test from remote machine authentication and change password using Rest API client (Postman , Rest API via Chrome).

I am trying to understand:

  1. If there is any special setup needed on the server (e.g. elasticseacrh.yml or any other file).

  2. which authenticate do i need to use (Basic Auth or Oauth/2).

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you need to tell elasticsearch to listen on a public IP for http using the setting.

You should use basic auth.
