Kibana 5 Snapshot available, but where is Elasticsearch 5?


#1

Not sure if this goes here, under Elasticsearch, or on GitHub. I thought I'd check-out Kibana 5, mainly to see if the graphic editing capabilities are present and working. I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting the ability to change fonts, sizes, and colors for main titles, axis titles, and other elements. The ability to change the colors used in graphical elements, move and alter legends, and add static graphical elements (company logos or other elements) would be welcome also.

In any case, I downloaded the Kibana 5.0.0 snapshot, installed it, and got the following error:
This version of Kibana requires Elasticsearch ^5.0.0 on all nodes. I found the following incompatible nodes in your cluster: Elasticsearch v2.2.0

There are no pre-release snapshots on the Elasticshield GitHub, so I'm wondering how I get Kibana 5 working. If it's just too early yet, that's OK too...

I don't think there are any pre-release snapshots available at this time, but you could check out the source on GitHub and build from source. Here are some instructions: https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md

You'll have to install Gradle and run the gradle assemble command.

Hope this helps!

Here's a link to Elasticsearch master, which is 5.0;

http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/build.eu-west-1.elastic.co/origin/master/elasticsearch-latest-SNAPSHOT.zip

Obviously since this is a snapshot DO NOT use this for production. But it should work well enough for you to try Kibana 5.0 snapshot.

Thanks,
Lee

Thank you! I just downloaded it and will try it over the next few days. I understand this isn't for production. I'm just getting a head start on any new capabilities.
