Setup for kibana dashboards: fail to get the Kibana version


#1

Hi,

I get this error message when trying to import the dashboard for winlogbeat in to kibana.

(winlogbeat-6.1.1-windows-x86_64)

.\winlogbeat.exe setup --dashboards
Exiting: Error importing Kibana dashboards: fail to create the Kibana loader: Error creating Kibana client: fail to get the Kibana version:fail to unmarshal the response from GET http://MY_KIBANA:5601/api/status: json: cannot unmarshal string into Go struct field kibanaVersionResponse.version of type struct { Number string "json:"number""; Snapshot bool "json:"build_snapshot"" }. Response: {"name":"MY_KIBANA","version":"5.2.2"," (truncated)

Please can anyone point me in the right direction?

What is your Kibana version?
It is possible that you are encountering this issue: https://github.com/elastic/beats/issues/6090

I installed winlogbeat 5.2.2 the day after I encountered this problem, and that version works just fine with my setup.
It looks like there is some backward compatibility problems with older versions of kibana regarding the dashboard setup in winlogbeat-6.1.1.
