We are using hosted elasticsearch service with platinum license. And we are trying to connect this hosted ES service by KIbana standard distribution server on local machine. Which is working great. We had to use kibana on local as we need to customize few features in it. When I checked the license it is using, it was same as ES hosted on elastic cloud. So my question is, is it a recommended way? Is it a right that our local Kibana is using hosted elasticsearch service? Is there going to be a problem with license?
That's perfectly fine to connect whatever tool to your elasticsearch cloud instance, including a local Kibana.
I can't see any problem with that.
