Get features API

[experimental] This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but experimental features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features. Retrieves all Kibana features. Features are used by spaces and security to refine and secure access to Kibana.
