Keeping up with Kibana: This week in Kibana for January 13th, 2020

Happy New Year from everyone at Kibana!  Many of us have enjoyed a much needed holiday, but we've also been busy with some exciting new work. Read on to find out what we've been up to for the past few weeks.


Kibana will soon support PKCS #12 keystores and truststores for configuring TLS!  Elasticsearch has had support for PKCS #12 in addition to PEM encoded certificates and keys for a while now, and the lack of support in Kibana made configuring TLS even more complicated.

Additionally, Kibana now has an interface to manage Elasticsearch role mappings! This will make configuring realms besides the file and native realms even easier.



Boundaries for all countries in Europe are now available in Elastic Maps Service across all versions of Kibana! Countries with new boundaries include Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czechia, Greece, Greenland, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, and Ukraine. These boundaries can be used in Elastic Maps or region maps visualizations today. See all available boundaries at

App Architecture

Kibana platform APIs for state management and settings management are now available.
