Another "Unable to Configure an index pattern" in Kibana 5.3


#1

Sorry to bother you with this issue but after several hours trying to figure out what happens with my installation I do not spot the reason.

I'm running 5.3 versions of ELK on my local Ubuntu desktop.
The ELK installation went well and I see all the components up and running, but when I try to create the first index pattern, the web page http://localhost:5601/app/kibana#/management/kibana/index/?_g=() does not allow me to input the time-field name.

I checked similar topics already opened here and after some reading I'm still stuck.

For example, in response to
http://localhost:9200/_cat/indices/users?v

I got:

{"error":{"root_cause":[{"type":"index_not_found_exception","reason":"no such index","resource.type":"index_or_alias","resource.id":"users","index_uuid":"na","index":"users"}],"type":"index_not_found_exception","reason":"no such index","resource.type":"index_or_alias","resource.id":"users","index_uuid":"na","index":"users"},"status":404}

and
$> curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_aliases?pretty'

I got this:

{
".kibana" : {
"aliases" : { }
}
}

Can somebody help on this ?

Cheers

It looks like you don't have any "users" index. Have you indexed any data in Elasticsearch?

Thanks Lukas,

Following the Kibana documentation to load data I managed to put it manually. Now, I see the stuff there and I can configure indexes.

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_aliases?pretty'
{
"shakespeare" : {
"aliases" : { }
},
"logstash-2015.05.20" : {
"aliases" : { }
},
"bank" : {
"aliases" : { }
},
".kibana" : {
"aliases" : { }
},
"logstash-2015.05.19" : {
"aliases" : { }
},
"logstash-2015.05.18" : {
"aliases" : { }
}
}

Still remains why I can't see the other indexes from Logstash / Filebeat.
