Kibana suddenly removed all index patterns and visualization


(Rosette Tienzo) #1

Hi all,

I'm having a problem with Kibana which suddenly removed all index patterns and visualizations.

All index patterns, as well as visualizations and dashboard, has been deleted from my Kibana 5.6 which is uploaded in a server. I checked the indexes using GET _cat/indices, they are still there but zero data. I didn't do anything on Kibana or Elasticsearch. It just suddenly remove all data.

Please help. Thank you!

It sounds like your .kibana index has been deleted. Check Elasticsearch logs for further details. You also want to check whether your server is open to the internet.

Yes my Kibana was open to the internet. I was trying out talking to a server where Kibana is running with my program. I saw a message of someone who took my data. It was test data anyway. I'll secure it now. Any suggestions on securing Elasticsearch and Kibana?

Thanks for the reply Christian!
