Kibana not displaying X-pack features


#1

Hi,

Iam first time user of ELK stack. I had installed Kibana 6.0.3 and ElasticSearch 6.0.3.

After running kibana and viewing the console , I am unable to view the x-pack features like graph,machinelearning..

Below is the log that I see

bin/kibana

I went through the discussion forum link on similar case, but still not able to resolve
https://discuss.elastic.co/t/x-pack-enabled-kibana-not-showingup-xpack-features/134708

Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

You are running the basic license. You need to start a trial to see all the xpack stuff.

Management > License management should have an easy way to start the trial:

Hi Stacey,

Thank you very much for replying .I went through the reference documentation, which mentioned that I should be able to view the x-pack features by default .

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/6.3/setup-xpack-kb.html

Graph is automatically enabled in Elasticsearch and Kibana.

To start exploring connections in your data:

Open Kibana in your web browser and log in. If you are running Kibana locally, go to http://localhost:5601/.
Click Graph in the side navigation to open the graph explorer.

I just want to confirm whether it would be displayed under basic license itself.

Thanks.

No they aren't available under the basic license. I have filed an issue in our docs repo, as it does indeed seem misleading. Thanks for highlighting the issue!

Thank you for your clarification. :+1:
