I tried to install SeachGuard on ES 6.2.2 , CentOS 7, i used the demo certificates in the ZIP file.
I manage to login with kibanaserver and admin users. I still have a small problem when i click on the “Discover” tab, but i learned this has to do because i need to create a special SG user.
So i wanted to create this user with the GUI.
With admin, is see the SearchGuard GUI tab, however, when i want to change something and click on any icon, i am redirected to the logon page again.
(fyi I have also XPACK installed, but the demo license is expired and i only use the free monitor part. However, installing SG with XPACK installed was a nightmare)
I seem not to have access to the SG index (??) but i don’t see any warnings in kibana.log or elasticsearch.log
fyi i changed the kibana user to admin/admin just to give him full access, but this doesn’t help. Same problem with kibanaserver user
searchguard.restapi.roles_enabled: [“sg_all_access”, …]
Kibana is served by a back end server. This setting specifies the port to use.
Specifies the address to which the Kibana server will bind. IP addresses and host names are both valid values.
The default is ‘localhost’, which usually means remote machines will not be able to connect.
To allow connections from remote users, set this parameter to a non-loopback address.
Enables you to specify a path to mount Kibana at if you are running behind a proxy. This only affects
the URLs generated by Kibana, your proxy is expected to remove the basePath value before forwarding requests
to Kibana. This setting cannot end in a slash.
The maximum payload size in bytes for incoming server requests.
The Kibana server’s name. This is used for display purposes.
The URL of the Elasticsearch instance to use for all your queries.
When this setting’s value is true Kibana uses the hostname specified in the server.host
setting. When the value of this setting is false, Kibana uses the hostname of the host
that connects to this Kibana instance.
Kibana uses an index in Elasticsearch to store saved searches, visualizations and
dashboards. Kibana creates a new index if the index doesn’t already exist.
The default application to load.
If your Elasticsearch is protected with basic authentication, these settings provide
the username and password that the Kibana server uses to perform maintenance on the Kibana
index at startup. Your Kibana users still need to authenticate with Elasticsearch, which
is proxied through the Kibana server.
Enables SSL and paths to the PEM-format SSL certificate and SSL key files, respectively.
These settings enable SSL for outgoing requests from the Kibana server to the browser.
Optional settings that provide the paths to the PEM-format SSL certificate and key files.
These files validate that your Elasticsearch backend uses the same key files.
Optional setting that enables you to specify a path to the PEM file for the certificate
authority for your Elasticsearch instance.
elasticsearch.ssl.certificateAuthorities: [ “/local/etc/elasticsearch/certs/root-ca.pem” ]
To disregard the validity of SSL certificates, change this setting’s value to ‘none’.
Time in milliseconds to wait for Elasticsearch to respond to pings. Defaults to the value of
the elasticsearch.requestTimeout setting.
Time in milliseconds to wait for responses from the back end or Elasticsearch. This value
must be a positive integer.
List of Kibana client-side headers to send to Elasticsearch. To send no client-side
headers, set this value to (an empty list).
#elasticsearch.requestHeadersWhitelist: [ authorization ]
Header names and values that are sent to Elasticsearch. Any custom headers cannot be overwritten
by client-side headers, regardless of the elasticsearch.requestHeadersWhitelist configuration.
Time in milliseconds for Elasticsearch to wait for responses from shards. Set to 0 to disable.
Time in milliseconds to wait for Elasticsearch at Kibana startup before retrying.
Specifies the path where Kibana creates the process ID file.
Enables you specify a file where Kibana stores log output.
Set the value of this setting to true to suppress all logging output.
Set the value of this setting to true to suppress all logging output other than error messages.
Set the value of this setting to true to log all events, including system usage information
and all requests.
Set the interval in milliseconds to sample system and process performance
metrics. Minimum is 100ms. Defaults to 5000.
The default locale. This locale can be used in certain circumstances to substitute any missing
