No sample dashboard or Visualize in new installed Kibana


#1

Hi All,

I am new for this, please forgive me if my question is too stupid.

my setup:

  1. client server ship apache/nginx log via filebeat to logstash server.

  2. logstash is on the same machine with elasticsearch as well as Kibana which process log, save in Elasticsearch ,and present in Kibana.

currenty, I have logs shipped and present via Kibana Discover with no issue.

However,

When i search any of sample Dashboard or Visualize, i also see no dashboards march, or visualize match. I been trying to search online about import sample dashboard, and followed exact steps but no luck.

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/view-kibana-dashboards.html
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/configuration-dashboards.html

i also tried to follow this page:

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/libbeat/1.3/load-kibana-dashboards.html

which when i start import dashboard, i am getting whole bunch of errors like blow. can i please ask if there anything wrong what i am doing? why everyone can see sample dashboard when type "*" but i see nothing on my install?

thank you so much

Hi Andy,

No need to apologize. Questions are always good :).

Two things:

  1. Can you please tell me if you have this in your metricbeat.yml and filebeat.yml?
setup.kibana:
  host: "localhost:5601"
  1. Can you please click on management and saved objects - and see if you have anything under dashboards/visualizations/saved objects? You could also post a screenshot of it if you would like.

Thanks,
Bhavya

Hi bhavyarm,

Thank you for the reply. I have eventually worked it out.

Yes, you are right, the reason was about missing setup.kibana in filebeat.yml file.

now, i will work on setup the filebeat configure for apache and nginx.

Andy
