Very basic question, but the documentation is not that clear I think.
I am looking how elastic and kibana communicate user info.
When creating a user in kibana is this user automaticaly available in elastic or does kibana has its own users and execute elastic commands as a proxy?
The users are stored in Elasticseach, when you create an user you can use it in any client, Kibana is just one of the possible clients.
Thanks for your reply, may I also conclude that when you create a "elastic" user, you need to give it the right/role to logon to Kibana?
You mean when you create an user or the specific
elastic user is a built-in user that has the superuser role.
But if you create another custom user, like
admin, you will need to create a role for this user first with the permissions it will need.
