You do not have permission to access requested page Kibana: Help


I have followed the guide on this site for security integration. Now When I restarted Kibana I'm entering kibana_system as the username and the password I created but after the login I get a message stating You do not have permission to access requested page.

This is the guide

How can I proceed from here?

The kibana_system is a built-in role used to connect to Elasticsearch. It's not intended as a login to Kibana.

I would login to Kibana using the elastic account and then create a new user and then use that one.


Thanks Aaron

Btw, the doc page you linked does say

This account is not meant for individual users and does not have permission to log in to Kibana from a browser. Instead, you’ll log in to Kibana as the elastic superuser.

Right after

You’ll configure Kibana to use the built-in kibana_system user and the password that you created earlier. Kibana performs some background tasks that require use of the kibana_system user.
