Answer #1:

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,

  1. Login to Kibana
  2. Navigate to Management -> Roles.
  3. click on +Create role
  4. Provide a name to your role
  5. In the index privileges section, provide the index name and privileges required (read, write etc.)
