I’m running search guard 22.3 with ElasticSearch 6.3.0.
I’m trying to configure Backups (snapshots) using Curator. I can perform my required snapshots using the inbuilt admin account, but it seems there is a built-in role called ‘snapshotrestore’ that should be used for this purpose.
Does the default roles and permissions allow for ‘snapshotrestore’ to perform these snapshots? (Me testing shows that is doesn’t).
Is the ‘snapshotrestore’ account supposed to work out-of-the-box or is it there as an incomplete example?
Is there a permission structure that you can recommend for backup account to use that doesn’t rely on administrator type permissions?
