X-Pack Enabled Kibana not showingup Xpack features


(Akash John) #1

Hi Team,

I have installed kibana and installed xpack on that. If I am starting the kibana as service (sudo systemctl restart kibana.service) the xpack menu on kibana such as monitoring, graph, machine learning, etc.

But if I am starting like cd /usr/share/kibana && bin/kibana, it will show up all of them.

Could you please let us know how can we get all these menu as part of service starting mode?

Sounds like the license can not be verified when deploying Kibana as a service. What messages are in the logs when starting Kibana? There should be license checks for x-pack applications. Do you see those? Are they successful?

Hey @Nathan_Reese,

Thanks for your response.

If we are starting the kibana using bin/kibana, we are getting all features of xpack and getting the logs as shown below,

Kibana.yml

server.port: 5601
server.host: "0.0.0.0"
elasticsearch.url: "http://10.65.45.22:9200"
elasticsearch.username: "kibana"
elasticsearch.password: "changeme"
logging.dest: stdout

I was not able to find a logfile for kibana so I ran journalctl -u kibana.service and took logs.

Hey Guys,

Could you please provide an update on this?

Hey @john.akash,

I am having almost the same problem, but for me, either of these ways
(The x-pack plugin was already installed by itslef when installing the ELK stack.)

cd /usr/share/kibana && bin/kibana
or
sudo systemctl restart kibana

that I try to start Kibana I am still getting the same features and cannot see all the x-pack features.

Here is my http://localhost:9200/_xpack result:

{
"features" : {
"graph" : {
"description" : "Graph Data Exploration for the Elastic Stack",
"available" : false,
"enabled" : true
},

"watcher" : {
"description" : "Alerting, Notification and Automation for the Elastic Stack",

"enabled" : true
}
},
"tagline" : "You know, for X"
}

Could anyone please help me to be able to see and use these features like ml, watcher... .

Thanks in advance.
