Changing xpack settings via API


I wish to increase the timeout for CSV report generation on Kibana, but I don't have access to the kibana.yml file to change the xpack.reporting.queue.timeout value. Is there a way I can change it via the API method using Dev Tools? Also, do I need to restart the Kibana and ES nodes after changing the value, or will it take effect automatically?

Thank you.

It depends.

If by "not having access to kibana.yml", you mean that you are running on Elastic Cloud, then you can change that setting from the Cloud UI in the Kibana settings. The documentation shows the cloud icon, meaning that's editable on cloud.

If not, you can't modify this. DevTools only communicates with Elasticsearch but this is a Kibana setting. And this setting is not available either in the Kibana Advanced Settings.
