To enforce data confidentiality and maintain user accessibility with Elasticsearch, we need to know how to create custom roles and users. In this hands-on lab, you will complete the following tasks on a single-node Elasticsearch cluster using either Kibana or curl on the command line:

  • Install X-Pack on Elasticsearch
  • Set built-in user passwords
  • Install and configure X-Pack on Kibana (optional)
  • Create a custom role
  • Create a user
What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
