Installed X-Pack but Monitoring Menu doesn't appear on Kibana

I've installed X-Pack on Elastic and Kibana; however, on Kibana interface the Monitoring menu doesn't appear. The version I'm running is 5.4.0 and x-pack was installed using zip file

bin/elasticsearch-plugin list --verbose
Plugins directory: /usr/share/elasticsearch/plugins

  • Plugin information:
    Name: x-pack
    Description: Elasticsearch Expanded Pack Plugin
    Version: 5.4.0
    Native Controller: true
  • Classname: org.elasticsearch.xpack.XPackPlugin

I can see that some default indexes got created though:

kibana.yml has:

xpack.monitoring.enabled: true
xpack.monitoring.ui.enabled: true false

and elastic.yam has: false true false

I also have cerebro installed on that node.

any hints?

I could reproduce your situation with the same settings, when X-Pack is not installed on Kibana, but only
on Elasticsearch.

If this is the case for you, please make sure you have installed X-Pack on Kibana too, by following this guide

Thanks. However, I indeed installed Xpack for Kibana same as I did on Elastic. I mentioned it in the top of my message.
But your link helped. I re-installed the X-pack again specifying the user. And it worked. ))) Thank you for pointing to the useful link!
