Remote access to Elasticsearch from Kibana

Hi, I could not configure a local Kibana instance to query a remote Elasticsearch cluster...

I have access to the cluster from my local machine:

$ curl <IP>:9200
  "name" : "node-1",
  "cluster_name" : "<cluster name>",
  "cluster_uuid" : "<cluster uuid>",
  "version" : {
    "number" : "7.6.2",
    "build_flavor" : "default",
    "build_type" : "deb",
    "build_hash" : "ef48eb35cf30adf4db14086e8aabd07ef6fb113f",
    "build_date" : "2020-03-26T06:34:37.794943Z",
    "build_snapshot" : false,
    "lucene_version" : "8.4.0",
    "minimum_wire_compatibility_version" : "6.8.0",
    "minimum_index_compatibility_version" : "6.0.0-beta1"
  "tagline" : "You Know, for Search"

and in Kibana, I could add the cluster as a remote cluster using its name and IP with port 9300 (and not 9200). Kibana tells me it is "Connected" to the remote cluster.

From there, how can I query the remote indices? They are not showing in Kibana, but the local ones are.

Note: I am connected to the remote host with a VPN. The node's IP I use is the IP on this VPN.


You need to config the cluster for CCS as well, not only as a remote cluster:
