Code starts with an overview of your repositories. You can then use the UI to add, delete, and reindex a repo.
Add and delete a repoedit
The Import your first repository page provides step-by-step instructions for adding a GitHub repo to Code. You can fine tune the hostname of the git clone URL in your
For security reasons, Code allows only a few trusted hostnames, such as github.com, by default. You can add an SSH key to Kibana to clone private repos.
Deleting a repo removes it from local storage and the Elasticsearch index.
Reindex a repoedit
You can set Code to automatically reindex imported repos at set intervals by set the following config in
In some cases you might need to manually refresh the index besides automatic indexing. For example, you might refresh an index after a new language server is installed. Or, you might want to immediately update the index to the HEAD revision. Click Reindex to initiate a reindex.
Clone URL managementedit
For security reasons, Code only allows the following hostnames in the git clone URL by default:
You can add your own hostname (for example, acme.com) to the whitelist by adding the following line to your
xpack.code.security.gitHostWhitelist: [ "github.com", "gitlab.com", "bitbucket.org", "gitbox.apache.org", "eclipse.org", "acme.com" ]
xpack.code.security.gitHostWhitelist to  (empty list) allow any hostname.
You can also control the protocol to use for the clone address. By default, the following protocols are supported:
[ 'https', 'git', 'ssh' ]. You can change this value by adding the following line to your
config/kibana.yaml file. In this example, the user only wants to support the
xpack.code.security.gitProtocolWhitelist: [ "https" ]
Clone repo with SSH keyedit
If your repo clone requires an SSH key for authentication, put the SSH key in
data/code/credentials/ under the Kibana folder.
