Can't reset the default admin password

SearchGuard version : 6.2.2
Elasticsearch version: 6.2.2
OS :Centos 7

No other installed plugins.

I’m currently trying out searchguard and installed it successfully but I can’t change the default password for ‘admin’.

I tried modifying the sg_internal_users.yml file to remove the readonly flag and change the password but nothing changes and I can still login using the old password and can’t log in using the new one.

Is there something else I should do ? ( i.e restart searchguard perhaps ) and if so, how can I do that ?

Thank you.

whenever you make changes to the sg_*.yml files you need to run sgadmin to make the changes effective, see https://docs.search-guard.com/latest/sgadmin

Another option is to use the config gui (which is a enterprise feature), see https://docs.search-guard.com/latest/configuration-gui#using-the-search-guard-configuration-gui
