Additional APM users and rolesedit

This documentation refers to configuring the standalone (legacy) APM Server. This method of running APM Server will be deprecated and removed in a future release. Please consider upgrading to Fleet and the APM integration.

In addition to the APM Server users described in this documentation, you’ll likely need to create users for other APM tasks:

  • An APM reader, for Kibana users who need to view the APM app, or create and edit visualizations that access apm-* data.
  • Various APM app API users, for interacting with the APIs exposed by the APM app.
