Indexes are not visible in Kiabana even though ES have

I am unable to see or create index pattern for the ES indexes, as Kiabana says no Data from Elastic Search.

but when I run http://localhost:9200/_cat/indices?pretty
I can see below indexes in ES

green  open .kibana_task_manager       XcFsDnpdTYK90KVNB-fv6w 1 0   2 0             46.2kb  46.2kb
green  open .kibana_1                  vn74gzb6TKSUkCpaD4gFkw 1 0 614 6 32.8kb 332.8kb
yellow open logstash-2019.04.17-000001 w5TF7NmFQ4yh8aeJ2NZulA 1 1   0 0    283b    283b

my logstash config file is as below

 input {
 beats { port => 5400}
  output {
    elasticsearch {
        hosts => ["http://localhost:9200"]
    stdout { codec => rubydebug }   

I want to create logstash index in Kibana but I cant

Please help, I have been struggling for the past week, and I am using ELK 7.0


Can you try to create a dummy index on your es instance (PUT /dummy-index) and see if you can create an index pattern from it in Kibana?



Yes I was able to create dummy indexes, and then able to see in Kiabna only if I put some dummy doc in the index. so I am guessing my logstash index doesnt have doc.count=0 do you think thats the reason ?

Hello @sebastien,

Its problem with my Filebeat pointing to wrong port of logstash but its not having docs in it thats reason.

My bad, its stupid mistake.

thanks for the reply

Great, happy to help :slight_smile:
