NOTE: You are looking at documentation for an older release. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
If you divide workspaces in an Elastic cluster using multiple Kibana instances
with a different
kibana.index setting per instance, you must set a unique
kibana.index. Otherwise, report generation will periodically fail
if a report is queued through an instance with one
kibana.index setting, and
an instance with a different
kibana.index attempts to claim the job.
Kibana instance A:
kibana.index: ".kibana-a" xpack.reporting.index: ".reporting-a" xpack.reporting.encryptionKey: "something_secret"
Kibana instance B:
kibana.index: ".kibana-b" xpack.reporting.index: ".reporting-b" xpack.reporting.encryptionKey: "something_secret"
If security is enabled, the
xpack.reporting.index setting should begin
.reporting- in order for the
kibana_system role to have the necessary
privileges over the index.
