Snapshot and restore access to the Search Guard index

By default, Search Guard does not allow to take a snapshot and restore the Search Guard index. This limitation can be lifted by explicitly allowing access to the Search Guard index in elasticsearch.yml:

searchguard.unsupported.restore.sgindex.enabled: true

Note: This setting must be configured in addition to

searchguard.enable_snapshot_restore_privilege: true

Please also refer to the snapshot and restore configuration documentation.
