(Sushant Sood) #1

I am using Kibana 4.3.0 with ES 2.1 and I can see kibana is sending x-Forwarded-for : 127.0.0.1 in the request header to elasticsearch even though if i am not using any load balancer . Can you please confirm if its a desired behavior?

Just, this is expected and even desired behavior. To quote from this issue: https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/5705

Yes, kibana uses this header to identify clients connecting through the /elasticsearch endpoint.
