Which role are the Beats clients supposed to use to connect to Elastic?

Is there already a built-in role for Beats clients in Elastic or does one need to be created?


This is all described in https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elastic-stack-overview/current/beats.html

Thanks Ioannis. Still a bit confused. Is monitoring data different from logs that are shipped?

The role beats_system shows access to .monitoring-beats-* but not filebeat-*

So there isn't a built-in role for filebeat clients so they can write log data to elastic?
