We are on Kibana 6.1 and ES 6.1. In one of our ES production clusters, we have action.auto_create_index setting as false. And when I try to create a new index pattern on Kibana, it throws an error saying that this particular setting is preventing Kibana from doing its job. I had to reset the setting in our cluster to be able to map the index pattern successfully.
- Is there a way I can specify a pattern for this setting which would allow only Kibana indices to be created. Something like this: action.auto_create_index: +.kibana*
- Apart from .kibana, does kibana create any other indices on ES?
- If it doesn't, then after the first Kibana use (after .kibana has been created), can I go back and set my action.auto_create_index to false in my ES cluster?
Thanks for you help.
