SHC is great…but one of the biggest drawbacks that I’ve found is – user and role mgmt. I’ve to create users and roles in every search head severely limits my motivation to have more search heads in cluster..

Is that getting resolved anytime soon ?

Thanks for your question. We are working on this, and it will be addressed in the future version.
