Ingest Manager in Kibana enables you to add and manage integrations for popular services and platforms, as well as manage Elastic Agent installations in standalone or Fleet mode.
Standalone mode requires you to manually configure and manage the agent locally.
Fleet mode offers several advantages:
- A central place to configure and monitor your Elastic Agents.
- An overview of the data ingest in your Elasticsearch cluster.
- Multiple integrations to collect and transform data.
To get started with ingest management, refer to the Ingest Management Guide.
