Kibana not able to connect to Elastic

Hi Team,

I have installed OSS version ROR plugin and able to set up basin auth and SSL for the elastic cluster. Currently i am using self signed certificate.

I am unable to bring up kibana after enabling SSL in elastic cluster. Below are my kibana.yml settings:

server.port: 5601
server.host: 0.0.0.0
elasticsearch.hosts: https://FQDN:9200
elasticsearch.username: “user”
elasticsearch.password: “password”
pid.file: /var/run/kibana.pid
logging.dest: /var/log/kibana/kibana.log

But i getting error as:
{“type”:“log”,"@timestamp":“2020-02-03T05:22:52Z”,“tags”:[“error”,“elasticsearch”,“admin”],“pid”:88937,“message”:“Request error, retrying\nGET https://FQDN:9200/.kibana => self signed certificate”}

Let me know if i have to add anything else in kibana.yml.

Regards,
George

Hello George, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

If you have a self signed SSL certificate on the Elasticsearch HTTP interface, then you also need to tell Kibana not to verify the certificate. Please try to add this line to kibana.yml:

elasticsearch.ssl.verificationMode: "none"
