This month, we have the pleasure to announce an important new feature for Search Guard: A built-in authentication token service.
This feature allows any user logged into Search Guard to create access tokens which can be used for external applications, scripts, etc. without having to use a password. Auth tokens can have a limited set of permissions, a limited lifetime and can be revoked by the user.
As this is a very fundamental functionality, we are releasing it first as a beta version.
You can download it here: Index of search-guard-suite-release/com/floragunn/search-guard-suite-plugin/7.9.3-authtoken.beta1
For details on how to use the feature, refer to the documentation: Search Guard Auth Tokens | Security for Elasticsearch | Search Guard
We are looking forward to any feedback from you!
Many greetings from the Search Guard team
