  5. Click Create deployment and download the password for the elastic user.

If you are using a self-managed deployment, you access Kibana through the web application on port 5601.

  1. Point your web browser to the machine where you are running Kibana and specify the port number. For example, localhost:5601 or http://YOURDOMAIN.com:5601.
  2. To allow remote users to connect to Kibana, set the parameter server.host in kibana.yml to a non-loopback address.
  3. On the home page, click Kibana.
