Xpack - User unauthorized to to curl Health checks

Hello guys,
i succesfully setup Xpack in my ELK-Cluster - now i have to get my monitoring to no throw any errors when checking


So i added a user called "checkmk" with the following command:

bin/elasticsearch-users useradd checkmk -p XXXXXXX -r monitoring_user,kibana_admin

I used the built-in roles from elasticsearch - i thought this might do it's thing - but everytime i try to authenticate with the user (after i restarted elasticsearch) i get the following error:

{"error":{"root_cause":[{"type":"security_exception","reason":"action [cluster:monitor/state] is unauthorized for user [checkmk]"}],"type":"security_exception","reason":"action [cluster:monitor/state] is unauthorized for user [checkmk]"},"status":403}[

Does anybody know what priviliges i have to grant the user to check this? I would not like to give him 'superuser' role.

I'm using ELK v 7.6 and i have not configured any roles on my own by now.

Thanks in advance!

You'll have to assign the built-in remote_monitoring_collector role to your checkmk user, or create a custom role with at least the monitor cluster privilege.

Thanks for the fast solution!
