X-pack on es 6.1.0 and configsync not working

Plugin is installed, but cant start

[2018-02-19T22:43:19,697][ERROR][o.c.e.c.s.ConfigSyncService] [node01] Failed to start ConfigFileUpdater.
org.elasticsearch.ElasticsearchSecurityException: action [indices:admin/exists] is unauthorized for user _[system]

[transport] [access_denied] origin_type=[local_node], origin_address=[], principal=[_system], action=[indices:admin/exists], indices=[.configsync], request=[IndicesExistsRequest]

It doesn't look like the config sync plugin is compatible with X-Pack security.
I would suggest that you raise the issue with the config sync authors.

Is there a way to give _system access to .configsync indice ?

No, that is not possible.
