This isnt great way of doing it but without using shield or new v5 x-packs, this is best way of making kibana readonly.

curl -XPUT ‘localhost:9200/.kibana/_settings’ -d ‘{ “index.blocks.read_only” : true }’

toggle to false to make it read/write

curl -XPUT ‘localhost:9200/.kibana/_settings’ -d ‘{ “index.blocks.read_only” : false }’
