SOLVED: Keep getting "Unable to fetch mapping. Do you have indices matching the pattern?"


(Rens Houben) #1

To begin, yes, I've checked this thread. And this one. And this one. None of them helped.

I'm using debian Jessie, with the deb https://artifacts.elastic.co/packages/5.x/apt stable main source for the ELK stack packages.

I've also inserted the shakespeare test data and (I think) successfully added logstash and syslog into ES. This is what my indices output looks like:

  admin@kibtest:~$ curl 'localhost:9200/_cat/indices?v'
  health status index               uuid                   pri rep docs.count docs.deleted store.size pri.store.size
  yellow open   syslog              PTDJ5AyiQOmE_S-vYtU8bQ   5   1      16309            0        3mb            3mb
  yellow open   syslog-ng           zN3AabOwTcOxOp3ftYMCdg   5   1       2232            0    733.7kb        733.7kb

  yellow open   shakespeare         pJJ06zu0RiOFrlmrB10Mmw   5   1     111396            0     29.1mb         29.1mb
  yellow open   .kibana             t3l8tZxLSRKAfshFS1eiIA   1   1          1            0      3.1kb          3.1kb

Yet when I fire up Kibana the index button remains greyed out with the above message no matter what I type into the search string box.

I have no idea what I'm overlooking, and I've run out of things to try. Any suggestions would be welcome.

EDIT: One of the threads mentioned logging in with different roles, but I couldn't find anything resembling user access controls in Kibana so I'm not sure what they meant...

SECOND EDIT Apparently, what you need to do is install the X-Pack plugin for both ES and Kibana, then use that to authenticate. This will allow you to set up filters and proceed.

Is there anything in the KB logs?
What version are you on?


(Rens Houben) #3

5.4.0 on all counts, and the kibana logs do not appear to contain anything useful:
