Elasticsearch Cluster connecting with Kibana

Hello guys,

i want to connect my elasticsearch cluster to Kibana.
I have read in the elastic documentation for kibana that i should also install elasticsearch on the same machine as kibana. After thath i should modify the elasticsearch.yml ( etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml).

I should set this both options node.master, node.data to false.

The Problem is thath my elasticsearch.yml have no node.master and/or node.data option to set it to false.
Can it possible that this guide (https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/production.html) is for an old elasticsearch version?

Is it functioning if i manually paste this two options in the elasticsearch.yml file?

Best Regards


Why not changing kibana.yml and connect directly to your cluster?

See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/kibana-server-properties.html

An elasticsearch Cluster have not really a cluster ip. I can only connect to one member of the Cluster.
If this cluster member wents down then i haven't some data from elasticsearch in Kibana.

You need to know what you are doing when you change settings.
If you want to have a local node as you wrote, it's fine. First you have to make this node joins the cluster, which means changing also cluster name, discovery list of nodes...

Or make Kibana directly connect to your Elasticsearch clusters
