The URL to your elasticsearch server. You almost certainly don’t want http://localhost:9200 here. Even if Kibana and Elasticsearch are on the same host. By default this will attempt to reach ES at the same host you have kibana installed on. You probably want to set it to the FQDN of your elasticsearch host

Note: this can also be an object if you want to pass options to the http client. For example:

+elasticsearch: {server: "http://localhost:9200", withCredentials: true}+


This is the default landing page when you don’t specify a dashboard to load. You can specify files, scripts or saved dashboards here. For example, if you had saved a dashboard called ‘WebLogs’ to elasticsearch you might use:

default_route: /dashboard/elasticsearch/WebLogs,


The default ES index to use for storing Kibana specific object such as stored dashboards


An array of panel modules available. Panels will only be loaded when they are defined in the dashboard, but this list is used in the "add panel" interface.
