I am using elasticsearch 2.3.3 , kibana 4.5 and shield for both. I set up everything in kibana.yml
My kibana.yml file is pasted below. I am getting an error while running kibana.bat
log [22:22:16.344] [error][status][plugin:elasticsearch] Status changed from yellow to red - Authentication Exception
I followed the steps as mentioned inthis post. Can anyone please help?
Kibana is served by a back end server. This controls which port to use.
The host to bind the server to.
If you are running kibana behind a proxy, and want to mount it at a path,
specify that path here. The basePath can't end in a slash.
The maximum payload size in bytes on incoming server requests.
The Elasticsearch instance to use for all your queries.
preserve_elasticsearch_host true will send the hostname specified in
elasticsearch. If you set it to false,
then the host you use to connect to this Kibana instance will be sent.
Kibana uses an index in Elasticsearch to store saved searches, visualizations
and dashboards. It will create a new index if it doesn't already exist.
The default application to load.
If your Elasticsearch is protected with basic auth, these are the user credentials
used by the Kibana server to perform maintenance on the kibana_index at startup. Your Kibana
users will still need to authenticate with Elasticsearch (which is proxied through
the Kibana server)
SSL for outgoing requests from the Kibana Server to the browser (PEM formatted)
