Error Elastic Stack Logging lab 3


I'm following the Elastic Stack Logging course and ran into an issue in lab 3. I configured TOPbeat as instructed and downloaded the Dashboard. Logging into Kibana I received the following error:
No matching indices found: [index_not_found_exception] no such index, with { resource.type="index_or_alias" &"filebeat-" & index_uuid="na" & index="filebeat-" }

Going to the Index Patterns the screen doesn't show anything and just shows a white screen.

Looking at the response after loading the dashboards I noticed the following:
{"error":{"root_cause":[{"type":"index_already_exists_exception","reason":"index [.kibana/VDqOpy5oQoWwkk7fgTnW3w] already exists","index_uuid":"VDqOpy5oQoWwkk7fgTnW3w","index":".kibana"}],"type":"index_already_exists_exception","reason":"index [.kibana/VDqOpy5oQoWwkk7fgTnW3w] already exists","index_uuid":"VDqOpy5oQoWwkk7fgTnW3w","index":".kibana"},"status":400}{"acknowledged":true}Loading search Cache-transactions

Does anybody have any idea what could be the cause (or causes) of these issues?

Kind regards,


Moving to the training forum.

Try deleting the Kibana index first, then retry loading the dashboards:

DELETE .kibana

That should fix your .kibana index_already_exists_exception
