Partial ELK component upgrade

Hi All,

Currently I have run a vulnerability scan and it produces the following information:

  • Users should upgrade to Kibana version 8.11.1

If the Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana that I currently use use version 8.6.0, is it possible for me to just upgrade Kibana to version 8.11.1 without upgrading the other components?

Thank you,


Kibana should be configured to run against an Elasticsearch node of the same version. This is the officially supported configuration.

Running different major version releases of Kibana and Elasticsearch (e.g. Kibana 5.x and Elasticsearch 2.x) is not supported, nor is running a minor version of Kibana that is newer than the version of Elasticsearch (e.g. Kibana 5.1 and Elasticsearch 5.0).

From documentation:
"Running a minor version of Elasticsearch that is higher than Kibana will generally work in order to facilitate an upgrade process where Elasticsearch is upgraded first (e.g. Kibana 5.0 and Elasticsearch 5.1). In this configuration, a warning will be logged on Kibana server startup, so it’s only meant to be temporary until Kibana is upgraded to the same version as Elasticsearch.

Running different patch version releases of Kibana and Elasticsearch (e.g. Kibana 5.0.0 and Elasticsearch 5.0.1) is generally supported, though we encourage users to run the same versions of Kibana and Elasticsearch down to the patch version."
