Kibana

Overview

Kibana is the web interface used to display data inside Elasticseach.

Basic Usage

Open a web browser and visit the following url: https://<sensorip>/app/kibana.

On first connection, users will be prompted for a username and password. Upon running the deploy script a random passphrase is generated in the style of XKCD.

These credentials are stored in "KIBANA_CREDS.README" file located in the home directory of the user created at install e.g. /home/admin/KIBANA_CREDS.README.
