Machine Learning Settings in Kibana

You do not need to configure any settings to use machine learning. It is enabled by default.

General Machine Learning Settings

xpack.ml.enabled

Set to true (default) to enable machine learning.

If set to false in kibana.yml, the machine learning icon is hidden in this Kibana instance. If xpack.ml.enabled is set to true in elasticsearch.yml, however, you can still use the machine learning APIs. To disable machine learning entirely, see the Elasticsearch Machine Learning Settings.
