In this tutorial, you learn how to secure a cluster by configuring users and roles in Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Metricbeat.
Before you beginedit
- Install and configure Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Metricbeat as described in Getting started with the Elastic Stack.
- Stop Logstash. The method for starting and stopping Logstash varies depending on whether
you are running it from the command line or running it as a service. For example,
if you are running Logstash from the command line, you can stop it by entering
Ctrl-C. See Shutting down Logstash.
- Stop Metricbeat. For example, enter
Ctrl-Con the command line where it is running.
- Launch the Kibana web interface by pointing your browser to port 5601. For example, http://127.0.0.1:5601.
