Running Kibana as Windows Service


(Anirban Sen) #1

I am using Kibana 5.5.
How can I run this as a Windows service?

Download and use the NSSM for running as a service it will help for you.

https://nssm.cc/download

what you need to do just go through above download link and install it in where your elastic stack is installed.

Next open Windows PowerShell and go to nssm install directory and type .\nssm install kibana and when you enter then you show one dialog box in this just give the path of kibana.bat file its in kibana/bin directory and install it.

Next just go to Task Manager and right click on kiabana and restart ot start the service.

Thanks & Regards,
Krunal.

I can confirm that NSSM works fine with Kibana, this is what we use in internal testing.
