Elasticsearch index not visible


(Ramaswawmy ) #1

Hi All,

I setup ELK stack 5.6.3. The issue is that Elastic nodes in my cluster are creating indexes with defined name, but when we query /_cat/indices, created indexes are not showing and Kibana dashboard as well. Can you please help me here.

Elasticsearch Log:
[2018-01-08T09:45:11,694][INFO ][t.b.r.a.ACL ] ALLOWED by { name: '::LOGSTASH::', policy: ALLOW} req={ ID:492301056-870312458#562108, TYP:BulkRequest, CGR:N/A, USR:logstash, BRS:true, ACT:indices:data/write/bulk, OA:10.10.71.24, IDX:NginxAccess-2018.01.08, MET:POST, PTH:/_bulk, CNT:<OMITTED, LENGTH=3155>, HDR:Accept-Encoding,Authorization,Connection,Content-Length,Content-Type,Host,User-Agent, HIS:[::LOGSTASH::->[indices->true, auth_key->true, actions->true]] }

Do you have more than one node in your cluster? If so, what does this show you?

What about is you create an index through the API? Somethign like

curl -XPUT -u elastic 'prd-elk1:9200/test?pretty' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'
{
    "settings" : {
        "index" : {
            "number_of_shards" : 3, 
            "number_of_replicas" : 2 
        }
    }
}
'

It looks like you have XPack security installed with LDAP authentication, is that right? Can you try to query _cat/indices with your LOGSTASH user and not the elastic one. What do you see?

Hi,
The output is

Can you try with the index name in lower-case?


(Val Crettaz) #6

Index names should be all lowercase, so I'm not sure that Logstash creates any index at all


(Ramaswawmy ) #7

Perfect, after changing the index to lower case, we see listed indexes and Kibana dashboard as well :smile:

Thanks all for your wonderful quick [root@prd-elk1 ~]# curl -XGET -uelastic prd-elk1:9200/_cat/indices?v
