Secure Settingsedit

Similar to Elasticsearch, you can use Kubernetes secrets to manage secure settings for Kibana as well.

For example, you can define a custom encryption key for Kibana as follows:

  1. Create a secret containing the desired setting:

    kubectl create secret generic kibana-secret-settings \
     --from-literal=xpack.security.encryptionKey=94d2263b1ead716ae228277049f19975aff864fb4fcfe419c95123c1e90938cd
  2. Add a reference to the secret in the secureSettings section:

    apiVersion: kibana.k8s.elastic.co/v1
    kind: Kibana
    metadata:
      name: kibana-sample
    spec:
      version: 7.9.3
      count: 3
      elasticsearchRef:
        name: "elasticsearch-sample"
      secureSettings:
      - secretName: kibana-secret-settings
