Kibaba APM UI setup - No services available



I am having a very basic issue visualizing APM data.

I can see data in Discover mode:

JSON looks like this:

"_index": "apm-test-1-2018.12.03",
"_type": "apm",
"_id": "aTeydGcBXgES9nfvPWq4",
"_score": 1,

"span": {
"name": "Span 464",
"type": "dk.bec.elk.apm.Application",

... Now, I have set up The Kibana APM UI as pr. instructions, And during setup we are seemingly happy:

However, When accessing the UI after, I still get:

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Hi Torben,

The APM UI might be reading from incorrect indicies and therefore not get any data. Can you try setting the following in kibana.yml:

apm_oss.errorIndices: apm-*
apm_oss.spanIndices: apm-*
apm_oss.transactionIndices: apm-*
apm_oss.onboardingIndices: apm-*



Thanks Søren.

That should be configured - However data is still missing...

Do you see any errors in the Kibana output (Node process)?


No visible errors...

Does this endpoint return a response, and what is the status code?

curl <kibana hostname>/api/apm/services?start=2017-12-09T15%3A13%3A32.171Z&end=2018-12-10T15%3A13%3A32.171Z

You can find all transactions with this query in Discover:

processor.event : "transaction" and*
