I have already used ELK 5.2 and i'm now testing ELK 5.6.7 (currently, the latest 5+ version).
When i'm automatically setting up my Elastic node, i configure the Kibana index-pattern.
Basically, I send some HTTP requests to the my elasticsearch. For example, for the index-pattern "syslog-*" i perform this kind of POST request:
curl -XPOST localhost:9200/.kibana/index-pattern/syslog-*/_create [...]
However, I encounter some error when i'm connecting to Kibana:
No matching indices found: No indices match pattern "syslog-*"
Right, since at this time Elastic does not have any "syslog-[...]" indices.
After some investigation, I found that the Kibana backend API is responsible of this error:
In Kibana 5.2 i didn't encounter any error when my Elasticsearch indices were not existing (probably because this API was not part of this version).
Is there a way to disable this type of error on Kibana (through its configuration file for example) or any workaround to don't check that the indices exist in Elasticsearch ?
Thanks in advance
