Is there any way to run logstash from the kibana UI

I want to know if it is possible to run log-stash from the kibana UI instead of going to terminal and then providing the config file and running it.

Can we do all these steps like,
1 writing config file for log-stash
2 Selecting the log file
3 running the logstash and moving the parsed log to Elasticsearch for indexing.

No. Logstash is a program on it's own, Kibana has no direct connection to it and it won't because it would be a security risk.

You can reindex stuff that is already in Elasticsearch by using the reindex API in Kibana, but that's it.

All right, thanks for the answer.
