Is there any way i can run my Kibana container as non-root user. My user is kibanauser.

Hi @Diksha_Rawat,

the error messages indicate that your user kibanauser can not write to the directories /var/run and /var/log/kibana due to them not existing or the user not having sufficient permissions. You could change that in your Dockerfile.

Alternatively you could consider to use the official docker images, that run Kibana as a non-root user as well. If the prebuilt images don't match your requirements you might be able to adapt them and build them yourself using

Hi @weltenwort
Thank you for your reply. I made changes to my Dockerfile as shown below

i gave all permissions to kibanauser still it's not working.kib

Could you please tell me what else i can add to my Dockerfile.
Is 5.5.1 is not compatible with non-root user?

Thank you

I see you are using an init script to start Kibana. This script is not designed to be run as the root process in a docker container. Kibana is run as non-root in the official docker image, so I would recommend to either use that. Alternatively you can try to take some inspiration from the official kibana-docker repo and the main wrapper script in particular.
