Error installing plugin shield in Kibana

security

(Samuel Costa) #1

Good Morning. I'm having trouble putting an authentication method for login and password in my Kibana interface. When I install the shield plugin returns me the error:

root@elk:/opt/kibana# bin/kibana plugin --install kibana/shield/latest
Installing shield

Plugin installation was unsuccessful due to error "unknown export types chromeNavControls in plugin shield"

Kibana : 4.3.1
ElasticSearch : 2:40

Hi Samuel,

I think you might have some versioning problems. Your version of Kibana and Elasticsearch are not guaranteed to be compatible. See;
https://www.elastic.co/support/matrix#show_compatibility
(look at the PRODUCT COMPATIBLY section)

If you're really on Elasticsearch 2.4.0, then you should be using the latest Kibana release 4.6.1 from https://www.elastic.co/downloads/kibana

The next issue could be that kibana/shield/latest probably wouldn't be correct for that older version of Kibana.

It's important that the Elasticsearch Shield plugin and the Kibana Shield plugin are in sync.

Regards,
Lee
