Elasticsearch Kibana CLI

Config Files

Elasticsearch Kibana CLI (eskbcli) configuration files are YAML format files that define; the Kibana endpoint address; an optional internal proxy allowing http-header overrides; and the search definitions to use at the Kibana frontend.

NB: all Elasticsearch Kibana CLI configurations MUST have an elasticsearch_kibana_cli: top-level root.

Three options exist for setting the configuration file; in order of precedence -

  1. Setting the --config command line argument at runtime.
  2. Setting the ESKBCLI_CONFIG_FILENAME shell environment variable.
  3. Saving the configuration in the user-path ~/.eskbcli
