Data is not loading on "Defining Your Index Patterns" page

(Harshal Yeole) #1


I followed Loading Sample Data Link to load the sample data in my ELK Stack and the data is loaded in the stack with indices but when I follow the new steps shown on the Defining Your Index Patterns link, and I go the Management >> Index Patterns tab I can't see the data that I just loaded.

I am able to see the data in the indices and the count in monitoring tool, here is the SS

Below is the details of the data:

From the screenshot I see that you have logged in as user kibana . Does this user have access/required privileges to see to the index you created?
From the cURL request, I see that you are cURLing as elastic user and hence seeing all the indices. What happens when you cURL as kibana user ? Which version is this ?

Hi Rashmi,

Thanks for writing.

How do I check (and add if necessary) the access/required privilages to see the index?

I tried logging in using the elastic user but it shows, signed in as Kibana and I still can't see the indices.

What am I doing wrong here?

I have added new user using following curl call, still I cant see the indices for getting the data.

curl -XPOST -u elastic 'localhost:9200/_xpack/security/user/ingestadmin' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{
"password" : "tudip123",
"full_name" : "Ingest Admin",
"email" : "",
"roles" : [ "ingest_admin" ]
