Unable to sign into ElasticSearch or Kibana after default 5.02 installation - help please?


I am prompted for a user name and password after installing v5.0.2 - both for localhost:9200 and Kibana.

In reading the notes her: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/x-pack/current/setting-up-authentication.html I tried executing the PUT commands through Fiddler but got 401 on each request - still needs auth.

I haven't set any user names or passwords and the only help online I can find relates to having installed Shield, which I have not installed.

Assistance please!

I can't issue any requests without first authenticating - that's the issue. Any other suggestions?

Authenticate with the default user first.


What are the default credentials please?

It's written in the doc I linked to already.


Excellent, thank you!
