How to enable Beats central management


(Jettro Coenradie) #1

I noticed the very cool feature of Beats central management. In the example there is a beats button on the management screen. I don't see it. I only see the elasticsearch and kibana part. Am I doing something wrong, or do I somehow have to enable it?

Thanks, the new update looks awsome

As per the subscriptions page It does require a commercial or trial license.

Clear was looking for docs, but could not find them. Looks like I am better at implementing a search solution than actually searching :wink:

After you activate your license, you'll see the option for Central management. The docs are here, depending on which Beat you're using:

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/configuration-central-management.html

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/configuration-central-management.html

We're still working on improvements to the docs, but hopefully this will get you started.
