Hello, I have been running the ELK stack 8.6.2 for a month now with no problems, but I had security disabled.
Today I attempted to enable security following this documentation:
I have the full ELK stack running on a server and I'm exposing Kibana through nginx. It's working (or was) just fine with 'xpack.security.enabled: false' on the elastic.yml. After following the above documentation in an attempt to setup minimal security, I have encountered an issue.
The issue is that I can't login to either the elastic user, or the kibana_system user through the dashboard. Now, I realize the kibana_system isn't supposed to be able to login on the dashboard and that's fine, but the elastic user can't either which means I can't access the dashboards at all.
The "strange" part about this error is that if I type in the elastic username and a random password, it immediately says password/username incorrect. However, if I type in the correct username and password, it appears to login and start loading for a moment, before I'm brought back to this screen:
I actually get to see this:
But then it just brings me back to the login error screen.
I apologize for any information I might not have given right off the bat, I'm fairly new to the ELK Stack. If there's any more information I can provide to help you help me, please do let me know.
I tried to find out how to read kibana logs so I could figure out what was happening but everything I found was through the dashboard, which I can't access at the moment.
Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
