Kibana stopped asking for login


(Frances Buontempo) #1

I installed X-Pack and kibana then asked for a lgoin.

It has stopped doing this.

I don't have xpack seetings (apart from username and password) in elasticsearch or kibana yaml; I understand by default they are set to true, and this did work but has suddenly stopped.

If I query _xpack I get...
...
"security" : {
"description" : "Security for the Elastic Stack",
"available" : false,
"enabled" : true
},...

but that's about elasticsearch.

How do I troubleshoot kibana no longer asking for login?

As to your _xpack response, the available is false which means security feature isn't working. Kibana security feature depends on elasticsearch to work.

I advise you to check if xpack has expired.

Good spot - I didn't see that.

I did update the certificate recently.

/_xpack/license reports:
...
"status" : "active",
"type" : "basic",
"issue_date" : "2017-09-25T00:00:00.000Z",
"expiry_date" : "2018-09-25T23:59:59.999Z",
...
(among other things)

The basic license does not support security feature. You could learn this from here
