Changing Kibana-int based on context


(cotcs) #1

I am a newbie to Computer science in general and at present I am working on
a project which involves Elasticsearch, logstash, and Kibana and we are
using this to build up a centralized Logging system. In kibana config.js ,
there is a parameter kibana_index whose default value is set to
"Kibana-int". Is there a way possible to change the value of Kibana-index
based on the context? What I could understand from my research is that
"kibana-int" is the index which stores all the dashboards. When I say
context, what I mean is if I have multiple projects in an organization, the
dropdown on kibana dashboard page should show the dashboards only under a
particular project when I give that project's name as the context in my
url. So people working in a project get to see only the ones in their
project. The only way I could find is to change the kibana-index value
based on the project say something like "kibana-projA". So it shows all the
dashboards under this particular index. But I couldnt find a way as to how
to do it. Could you please help me out.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I don't think you can do this dynamically within kibana. The better way
would be to run multiple instances of KB and then use a proxy to handle the
redirects.

That indeed is the reply I got from most of the sources but somehow I have
not been asked to adopt that method. What I am trying to do now is to
change the config.js file. I have written a function that receives query
parameters from the url but I have to assign it to kibana-index so that it
creates a new index by that name and does not use the default kibana-int. I
have no idea how to access kibana-index in javascript. Its defined in a
function Settings . This is my function below.

var proj_type = getProjectType("prjtype");

function getProjectType(type)
{
var query = window.location.search.substring(1);
var variables = query.split("&");
for (var i = 0; i<variables.length; i++) {
var param = variables[i].split("=");
if (param[0] == type) {
return param[1];
}
}

}

So proj_type now has the name of the project. Now I want to say something
like,

if (proj_type !=null){

kibana-index : "kibana-"+proj_type

}

This does not work though. :frowning:
