Kibana and Tribe Nodes


(Blake Moss) #1

I have tribe node which is connected to two ES clusters. I would like to visualize both clusters as one in kibana so I assumed that running kibana on my tribe node would be the solution. However, there seems to be errors (unable to create .kibana index) when I try to start kibana. I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

Kibana needs to be able to create the .kibana index if it doesn't exist, and tribe nodes don't allow index creation. https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/issues/15620 is an open issue that may help when implemented.

https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/3114 has some discussion on possible workarounds
