When xpack disabled, kibana disabled with searchguard tab

#1

Hi.

I have an issue about installing search-guard-plugin to elasticsearch and kibana.

After I added ‘xpack.security.enabled: false’ to elasticsearch.yml, I could not get searchguard tab in kibana.

I am using it on windows and build kibana version
Please check attached snap, configs and suggest.

*elasticsearch.yml configuration file

In the settings for the Elasticsearch plugin, you explicitly disabled the enterprise modules:

However, the configuration GUI us an Enterprise feature which is only available if the enterprise modules are enabled.

Thanks jkressin,

Can please help me , where I need to create user and how can we manage users.

As per community version features user can able to manage the users, but without UI representation of search guard in Kibana how can we mange the internal users.

Thanks,
