KIBANA Can't Download GeoJSON Map Due To CORS Error

Hello All,

I tried starting my Kibana Server but I got the an error. I included the necessary enable CORS parameters which I need to visualize a map in Kibana but when I try to visualize the map in Kibana I get the following error:

Cannot download http://localhost:8000/Liberian_Counties.geojson file. Please ensure the CORS configuration of the server permits requests from the Kibana application on this host

In order to resolve the above error I now included the following HTTP CORS related parameters in the KIbana.yml file

http.cors.enabled: true
http.cors.allow-origin: "*"
http.cors.allow-methods: OPTIONS, HEAD, GET, POST, PUT, DELETE
http.cors.allow-headers: kbn-version, Origin, X-Requested-With, Content-Type, Accept, Engaged-Auth-Token

When I restarted the Kibana Server in order that the 4 lines above take effect, I got the following error from the kibana server at startup.

error [08:36:55.054] [fatal][root] Error: "http.cors.enabled", "http.cors.allow-origin", "http.cors.allow-methods", and "http.cors.allow-headers" settings were not applied. Check for spelling errors and ensure that expected plugins are installed.

** at KbnServer.mixin (C:\Elastic Search Setup\kibana-6.5.4-windows-x86_64\src\server\kbn_server.js:170:16)**

Please can anyone help me to identify what the problem is and give the appropriate solution to the problem.

Thank You



I have corrected the problem. I was supposed to put the above HTTP CORS related parameters in the elastic.yml file AND NOT in the kibana.yml file as i did earlier.

Thank You All


Thanks for getting back with the solution.
