Kibana and plugin web sites not available at the same time

I have a working kibana website in ELK stack.

I want to use marvel,elastic-head, big_desk to monitor a cluster since it looks like we will have a few ELK#

I am quie new to appreciate the help of the ELK community and this discussion board.

Reading this post I see that the elasticsearch.yml page needs to be edited so that pages with port 9200
can be opened.

I did that and the elastic-head and other plugin pages can be opened. However kibana now fails, seems with me
present configuration I can not have kiabana and the plugin web pages at the same time.

In this situation kibana web page switched to server status web page and on elasticsearch line this is displayed :-
uanble to connect to elasticsearch at http://localhost:9200

to get plugin web pages I edited the network part of elasticsearch.yml to this
unhashed the first line for the two relevant lines and added my IP addr and port 9200 :-
Then restarted elasticsearch.

---------------------------------- Network -----------------------------------

Set the bind address to a specific IP (IPv4 or IPv6): aa.xx.yy.zz

Set a custom port for HTTP:

http.port: 9200

For more information, see the documentation at:

Am I editing the above at the correct location?

Is there somethig I am missing to get kibana and the other plugin web sites to work
at the same time ?


Hi there,

I can't be entirely sure of what's happening, since those plugins aren't Elastic products and I'm not very familiar with them. Where are you serving Elasticsearch from? In Kibana's config/kibana.yml you can set elasticsearch.url to point to that URL. Does this help?
