[object Object]: security_exception: [security_exception] Reason: unable to authenticate user [user1] for REST request [/index/_field_caps?fields=*&ignore_unavailable=true&allow_no_indices=false]

thank you in advanced!

You may need to add also view_index_metadata to the indices privileges apart from read.

This is an authentication error, not authorization. It means the credentials provided for user1 is incorrect.

All the permits that appear in the official documentation were granted, including the one you told me about.
