i don't really understand the question, but in general you can do a lot with plugins :slight_smile:
but just as a reminder, there is a big chance new version of kibana won't work with your plugin and you will need to constantly keep it up to date.

hello
thanks for your reply
what i want is a security solution for Kibana. for example ,to auth kibana with username and password.

i suppose plugin can help me to do this.?

there is x-pack which has a security for elasticsearch and kibana.
i think there are also some 3rd party plugins, so unless you really want something specially designed for your use case i would suggest you to not write your own

Can you recommend some plugin?


(Peter Pisljar) #6

x-pack for sure, its the only one supported by elastic

(Peter Pisljar) #8

yes, kibana server side is nodejs and frontend is js (angular and react)
