Importing data with cURL error. Newb here


(Mehdi) #1

Hey guys,

I've been learning Elasticsearch and Kibana for 2-3 days now. I'm super newbie and I know it but I was wondering if anyone can lend a hand.

Issue: I'm trying to pass a json file to my kibana session using the following command:

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -XPOST "http://localhost:9200/product/default/_bulk?pretty" --data-binary "@file_name.json"

However, I get the following error:

{
  "error" : {
    "root_cause" : [
      {
        "type" : "security_exception",
        "reason" : "missing authentication token for REST request [/product/default/_bulk?pretty]",
        "header" : {
          "WWW-Authenticate" : "Basic realm=\"security\" charset=\"UTF-8\""
        }
      }
    ],
    "type" : "security_exception",
    "reason" : "missing authentication token for REST request [/product/default/_bulk?pretty]",
    "header" : {
      "WWW-Authenticate" : "Basic realm=\"security\" charset=\"UTF-8\""
    }
  },
  "status" : 401

I already saw some posts that discussed the following:

  • xpack.security.encryptionKey: "something_at_least_32_characters"
  • xpack.security.enabled: false

But unfortunately messing with these settings in the .yml file hasn't helped.

Not sure if this helps but when I start my Kibana, I get some red errors and warnings:

Hi,

I believe you are using X-pack. You haven't provided authentication credentials to curl query. Please add those in the following format -u <username>:<password> to your curl request.

A similar thread to your can be found here.

Hope this helps you out.
