Kibana: Analyzing Data
Scheer PAS uses Kibana to view, filter and search the platform log s for all services.
Kibana is an open source analytics and visualization tool designed to work with Elasticsearch. With Kibana you can search, view, and interact with data stored in Elasticsearch indices. You can perform advanced data analysis and visualize your data in a variety of charts, tables, and maps.
For detailed information on Kibana, its features and how to use them, refer to the Official Kibana Documentation. Please note that Scheer PAS does not use the regular Elasticsearch/Kibana installation but the OpenDistro version. Some Kibana features may not be available in the OpenDistro version.
Please note that the official documentation may vary according to different versions of the tool.
Before consulting the documentation check your Kibana version. It is displayed if you open the help menu where you can also find a direct link to the official documentation.
Creating an Index Pattern
Kibana needs to knows which Elasticsearch indices contain the data you want to analyze. So you have to create an index pattern in Kibana first to make sure that data is available. If your Kibana is empty and does not contain an index pattern yet, Kibana asks you to create one. You need to do this only once after the first login, then all users with Kibana permission can view the logs.
To create an index pattern, open Kibana and log in.
