Plugin "metricsEntities" is disabled


I install Kibana 7.14 and command with "my_path".\bin\kibana.bat
but I get the following error: Plugin "metricsEntities" is disabled
How can I fix it?


Hi and welcome to our community!

Could you provide some details? Is it a fresh instance of Kibana or do you upgrade an existing one? If it's an upgrade, do you use custom plugins?

Thx & Best,

Hi Matthias,
It's a fresh one, it's just I download zip file and extract it to disk C.

@Naim_Rihan is that something preventing you from actually starting Kibana or just some warning? Have you an elasticsearch 7.14 correctly setup and running in the background? If you have, are your Kibana instance correctly configured to use it?

Could you provide the Kibana startup logs please?


Yes @ tiagocosta Elastic is running in background but kibana not ready yet

Elastic Running

@Naim_Rihan the problem lies within the authentication against the elasticsearch nodes. If you haven't changed the default password yet, just add the following into your config/kibana.yml

elasticsearch.username: "elastic"
elasticsearch.password: "changeme"



Thanks a million! it's the solution!

I added

elasticsearch.username: "elastic"
elasticsearch.password: "elastico"

Because when I was installing Elasticsearch for first time I put "elastico" in password here.
