If there a way to be able to access and view maps via kibana locally?


I am working my way through Kibana and when I come to the 'Maps' area on the console. There is a blank screen where I believe the imaged map should be. Am still able to edit/ ad parameters and am able to see the coordinates at the bottom right hand site of the page.

I believe that this 'Maps' area on Kibana is calling to:


I would like to ask, if there is a way to perform or action this map locally instead of opening up to be able to call this link? (very limited as to what can be opened up and to where). Is there a package that is able to be downloaded locally to be able to view the map functionality?

hi @Apollyon

It seems your Kibana-deployment does not have outbound access to the Elastic Maps Service (EMS)

Do you have admin access to the network that is hosting Kibana? If so, please ensure the Kibana-server has outbound access to the required EMS-domains. They are listed in the documentation here https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/maps-connect-to-ems.html .

You can also configure Kibana to use a custom self-hosted maps service by default. You can look here for some ideas https://www.elastic.co/blog/custom-basemaps-for-region-and-coordinate-maps-in-kibana

Also note that in the Maps-application, you can add any number of basemaps by putting in a URL in the "TMS"-option when selecting "add layer".

Hey @thomasneirynck

I am wanting to play around and see how to do this without changing anything within the network, more of a exercise to see what it is like when localhosting it.

Think I am going to have a go with the below :+1:

Thank you for your help with the rest of the above!
