Kibana 7.10 - Error connecting to package registry

Currently running Kibana 7.10 and the logs are getting filled with the following message:

"error","plugins","ingestManager"],"pid":11460,"message":"Error connecting to package registry: request to failed, reason: connect ETIMEDOUT"}

I found that this may be the cause:

In order to install Integrations, the Fleet app needs to connect to an external service called the Elastic Package Registry. For this to work, the Kibana server must be able to connect to on port 443

But what if its a cluster thats not connected to the Internet?


Hi @teej - I am afraid that this is a current limitation in the product and it is documented here:

  • Requires internet access for Kibana to download integration packages

Our development team is looking into this and you can subscribe to the related Github issue for further updates.

There is actually a workaround proposed by our developer in this comment but this approach should only be used for development and it is not supported.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi Ropc
Yes, that is very helpful. Thank you very much. I look forward to seeing how they fix that. It sometimes feels that Elastic is trying to be too many things to too many people.
