Does Elasticsearch Docker Image Contain Logstash and/or Kibana?

Hi, I'm a complete newbie to the world of Elasticsearch. But I'm reading through the online docs, though, and coming up-to-speed fast. I'd like to build my first Logstash / Elasticsearch / Kibana pipeline, and I started by pulling and spinning up the 7.3.0 docker container of Elasticsearch.

Question: The introductory videos talked about the larger Elasticsearch architecture, of which Logstash and Kibana were members. I got the initial impression that these three components were meant to run together as a single service, perhaps all within the ES container. But after carefully reviewing the online material, I'm not so sure anymore.

In the 7.3.0 ES container, will I find installed instances of Logstash and Kibana, just waiting for me to run them? If so, where? I can't find them. If not, will I have to spin up a Logstash and Kibana containers to complete the pipeline?

Is there a handy tutorial you can recommend on this topic? The few I've Google'd were from third-party sites and talked in shorthand; not very helpful for a greenhand like me.


Hi Pete,

Welcome to Elastic Forums!
Please find all the official docker containers from here.

Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana are meant to be running in different containers. They are different products.

There is no specific tutorial as such but we have an example github repository where you can find some examples contains docker containers.

We also have an Kubernetes operator which uses the Elasticsearch and few other Docker containers to help you create a cluster etc.


Oh, awesome, that's really, really helpful. Thank you!
