Unsure of xpack.reporting.encryptionKey

Hi so i setup xpack recently on my stack. When i run a report i get this error saying "Error: Failed to decrypt report job data. Please re-generate this report." I was reading and it seems like i need to add xpack.reporting.encryptionKey to my kibana config file. My question is where do i get the encryption key?


you can use any random secret you want for the xpack.reporting.encryptionKey setting. It just prevents Kibana from generating a random secret when it starts and thus rendering all reports useless, that has been generated before it restarted.

Also if you change that configuration, it won't rescue your old reports, you will still need to regenerate them, but they will once you've set that setting, be useable after a Kibana restart.
