Install Kibana as a service in centos


I am using rpm to install kibana. For starting the service, Im using another user and not "kibana" user. Its throwing an error mentioning that "kibana" user does not exist. Is it possible for editing the option and starting the service using any other user but "kibana"?


Remember to change the user and group in /etc/systemd/system/kibana.service and do "systemctl daemon-reload".

You may have to do this after any Kibana version upgrade. It's common to have to run logstash as root to use low ports like 514, this is the method I use.

Thanks @rugenl It worked by the above steps
