Kibana installation error

Hi All,

I have installed Elasticsearch "8.5.0". I keep getting the following problem when attempting to install Kibana.

Welcome to our community! :smiley:

Please don't post pictures of text, logs or code. They are difficult to read, impossible to search and replicate (if it's code), and some people may not be even able to see them :slight_smile:

Thanks for the quickly replay.

Do you know how to download how to download Kibana 7.0.1 .

If you know please send me the link.

Thanks

7.0 is EOL and no longer supported. Why do you want to run such an old version?

I have installed 8.5.0 .But it not worked properly.

So i have installed 7.01.

7.0 is not supported, please do not use it.

If you can share the logs in text format maybe we can help with 8.5.

Do you have the msi file for the 8.5.

if you have please send it.

You can find all the downloads in Download Kibana Free | Get Started Now | Elastic, we don't have an MSI though sorry.

i will download and let you know

Please let me know the default username and password for elasticsearch

The password is randomly generated, please see Installing Elasticsearch | Elasticsearch Guide [8.5] | Elastic and check the page for however you installed Elasticsearch.

now i am reciving this error:

Unable to retrieve version information from Elasticsearch nodes. security_exception: [security_exception] Reason: missing authentication credentials for REST request [/_nodes? filter_path=nodes..version%2Cnodes..http.publish_address%2Cnodes.*.ip]

It'd be useful if you shared your Kibana config.

Please format your code/logs/config using the </> button, or markdown style back ticks. It helps to make things easy to read which helps us help you.

please find the kibana config

For more configuration options see the configuration guide for Kibana in

Welcome to Elastic Docs | Elastic

=================== System: Kibana Server ===================

Kibana is served by a back end server. This setting specifies the port to use.

#server.port: 5601

Specifies the address to which the Kibana server will bind. IP addresses and host names are both valid values.

The default is 'localhost', which usually means remote machines will not be able to connect.

To allow connections from remote users, set this parameter to a non-loopback address.

#server.host: "localhost"

Enables you to specify a path to mount Kibana at if you are running behind a proxy.

Use the server.rewriteBasePath setting to tell Kibana if it should remove the basePath

from requests it receives, and to prevent a deprecation warning at startup.

This setting cannot end in a slash.

#server.basePath: ""

Specifies whether Kibana should rewrite requests that are prefixed with

server.basePath or require that they are rewritten by your reverse proxy.

Defaults to false.

#server.rewriteBasePath: false

Specifies the public URL at which Kibana is available for end users. If

server.basePath is configured this URL should end with the same basePath.

#server.publicBaseUrl: ""

The maximum payload size in bytes for incoming server requests.

#server.maxPayload: 1048576

The Kibana server's name. This is used for display purposes.

#server.name: "your-hostname"

=================== System: Kibana Server (Optional) ===================

Enables SSL and paths to the PEM-format SSL certificate and SSL key files, respectively.

These settings enable SSL for outgoing requests from the Kibana server to the browser.

#server.ssl.enabled: false
#server.ssl.certificate: /path/to/your/server.crt
#server.ssl.key: /path/to/your/server.key

=================== System: Elasticsearch ===================

The URLs of the Elasticsearch instances to use for all your queries.

#elasticsearch.hosts: ["http://localhost:9200"]

If your Elasticsearch is protected with basic authentication, these settings provide

the username and password that the Kibana server uses to perform maintenance on the Kibana

index at startup. Your Kibana users still need to authenticate with Elasticsearch, which

is proxied through the Kibana server.

#elasticsearch.username: "kibana_system"
#elasticsearch.password: "pass"

Kibana can also authenticate to Elasticsearch via "service account tokens".

Service account tokens are Bearer style tokens that replace the traditional username/password based configuration.

Use this token instead of a username/password.

elasticsearch.serviceAccountToken: "my_token"

Time in milliseconds to wait for Elasticsearch to respond to pings. Defaults to the value of

the elasticsearch.requestTimeout setting.

#elasticsearch.pingTimeout: 1500

Time in milliseconds to wait for responses from the back end or Elasticsearch. This value

must be a positive integer.

#elasticsearch.requestTimeout: 30000

The maximum number of sockets that can be used for communications with elasticsearch.

Defaults to Infinity.

#elasticsearch.maxSockets: 1024

Specifies whether Kibana should use compression for communications with elasticsearch

Defaults to false.

#elasticsearch.compression: false

List of Kibana client-side headers to send to Elasticsearch. To send no client-side

headers, set this value to (an empty list).

#elasticsearch.requestHeadersWhitelist: [ authorization ]

Header names and values that are sent to Elasticsearch. Any custom headers cannot be overwritten

by client-side headers, regardless of the elasticsearch.requestHeadersWhitelist configuration.

#elasticsearch.customHeaders: {}

Time in milliseconds for Elasticsearch to wait for responses from shards. Set to 0 to disable.

#elasticsearch.shardTimeout: 30000

=================== System: Elasticsearch (Optional) ===================

These files are used to verify the identity of Kibana to Elasticsearch and are required when

xpack.security.http.ssl.client_authentication in Elasticsearch is set to required.

#elasticsearch.ssl.certificate: /path/to/your/client.crt
#elasticsearch.ssl.key: /path/to/your/client.key

Enables you to specify a path to the PEM file for the certificate

authority for your Elasticsearch instance.

#elasticsearch.ssl.certificateAuthorities: [ "/path/to/your/CA.pem" ]

To disregard the validity of SSL certificates, change this setting's value to 'none'.

#elasticsearch.ssl.verificationMode: full

=================== System: Logging ===================

Set the value of this setting to off to suppress all logging output, or to debug to log everything. Defaults to 'info'

#logging.root.level: debug

Enables you to specify a file where Kibana stores log output.

#logging.appenders.default:

type: file

fileName: /var/logs/kibana.log

layout:

type: json

Logs queries sent to Elasticsearch.

#logging.loggers:

- name: elasticsearch.query

level: debug

Logs http responses.

#logging.loggers:

- name: http.server.response

level: debug

Logs system usage information.

#logging.loggers:

- name: metrics.ops

level: debug

=================== System: Other ===================

The path where Kibana stores persistent data not saved in Elasticsearch. Defaults to data

#path.data: data

Specifies the path where Kibana creates the process ID file.

#pid.file: /run/kibana/kibana.pid

Set the interval in milliseconds to sample system and process performance

metrics. Minimum is 100ms. Defaults to 5000ms.

#ops.interval: 5000

Specifies locale to be used for all localizable strings, dates and number formats.

Supported languages are the following: English (default) "en", Chinese "zh-CN", Japanese "ja-JP", French "fr-FR".

#i18n.locale: "en"

=================== Frequently used (Optional)===================

=================== Saved Objects: Migrations ===================

Saved object migrations run at startup. If you run into migration-related issues, you might need to adjust these settings.

The number of documents migrated at a time.

If Kibana can't start up or upgrade due to an Elasticsearch circuit_breaking_exception,

use a smaller batchSize value to reduce the memory pressure. Defaults to 1000 objects per batch.

#migrations.batchSize: 1000

The maximum payload size for indexing batches of upgraded saved objects.

To avoid migrations failing due to a 413 Request Entity Too Large response from Elasticsearch.

This value should be lower than or equal to your Elasticsearch cluster’s http.max_content_length

configuration option. Default: 100mb

#migrations.maxBatchSizeBytes: 100mb

The number of times to retry temporary migration failures. Increase the setting

if migrations fail frequently with a message such as `Unable to complete the [...] step after

15 attempts, terminating`. Defaults to 15

#migrations.retryAttempts: 15

=================== Search Autocomplete ===================

Time in milliseconds to wait for autocomplete suggestions from Elasticsearch.

This value must be a whole number greater than zero. Defaults to 1000ms

#unifiedSearch.autocomplete.valueSuggestions.timeout: 1000

Maximum number of documents loaded by each shard to generate autocomplete suggestions.

This value must be a whole number greater than zero. Defaults to 100_000

#unifiedSearch.autocomplete.valueSuggestions.terminateAfter: 100000

Hi
You should provide 3 important things in Kibana config file,

  1. A user name and password to authentication in elasticsearch
  2. Addresses of elasticsearch-if u install elasticsearch in recommended way it should deploy with security enabled mode so you have to use address with https
    3.path and name of public key which create with installation script.
