I am running the Elastic stack v 7.4.2 on Windows and am trying to setup the full stack monitoring by supplying elasticsearch logs using Filebeat as described here.
Everything goes well up to the point where I run the command .\filebeat.exe setup -e. The response is an error saying it was unable to get the Kibana version with
HTTP GET request to http://localhost:5601/api/status fails: parsing kibana response: invalid character '<' looking for beginning of value.
When I run the same command in my browser, I get a html page with the Kibana node information. Everything works there, no errors, however when using Postman I get a similar looking error including the words that
This Kibana installation has strict security requirements enabled that your current browser does not meet.
Could this be related?
What am I doing wrong in order to setup the dashboard in Kibana and ingest the logs into the "stack monitoring"?
