EditShare’s Auditing and Monitoring component has independent authentication from the rest of the storage product. When Auditing and Monitoring is initially installed, it has a default username (editshare) and password (<redacted>) that match the rest of the product. This creates a reasonable assumption on the part of the user that when they change the standard password for “editshare” that the password for Auditing and Monitoring changes. This is not the case and is covered in https://dev.editshare.com/redmine/issues/60912 . Until a fix for RM 60912 is available, this document describes how the Auditing and Monitoring password can be changed.
- Navigate to the Auditing and Monitoring UI. URL is: https://<efsmaster IP>:5601/login, but is also accessible via the EditShare Landing page
- Kibana is the User Interface for Auditing and Monitoring. Enter the Kibana Administrative username and password. Note the kibana username differs from the “editshare” username. The former has all Kibana privileges; the latter has read only access to Kibana. The default administrative username is: editshare_admin. At the time of writing, the default password is: danalex0603. After entering the UN and Password, clock the Log in button.
- After Kibana loads, click the security icon on the left hand side of the browser. Button is a bit hard to see, but is a “lock icon”. Alternatively, navigate to: https://<master IP>:5601/app/security-configuration#
- From the security page, click on the “Internal User Database” button. Note that a lot of damage can be done from this page. Do not manipulate anything beyond what is described.
- The list shows the two available users. Click the edit button next to “editshare”
- Enter the desired password in the first two fields and click submit.
- Log out of the system by clicking “editshare_admin” in the upper right corner.
After you have logged out of the editshare_admin account, you will be brought back to the Kibana login page. Enter the editshare as the user and the same password you typed in step 7 above. You should be logged into the Kibana as a read only user.
