I tend to access various clusters in various environments, usually via some ssh tunnel. The current version does not allow to specify cluster url. I mean by that that I have to edit configuration and restart, but it will work only with the ES servers with compatible version (I connect to 1.3 - 5.2 ES versions)
The only reasonable option I see is to keep using Kibana 4 with local ES 2.x
- is there a better way? (tribe node is not an option because of different environements)
- are there plans to bring back connecting to arbitrary elasticsearch.url ?
