Depending on what version of Elasticsearch is used, you can decide to install either the
shield(less than 5.x) plugin or
x-pack(paid subscription with a free trial period).
With x-pack installed, if you want to manage Roles in Kibana,
- Login to Kibana
- Navigate to Management -> Roles.
- click on +Create role
- Provide a name to your role
- In the index privileges section, provide the index name and privileges required (read, write etc.)
With shield, you can manage roles using this document.
