Set Up X-Pack

X-Pack is an Elastic Stack extension that bundles security, alerting, monitoring, reporting, machine learning, and graph capabilities into one easy-to-install package. To access this functionality, you must install X-Pack in Kibana.

After you install X-Pack, the following pages are added to the side navigation:

  • Machine Learning
  • Graph
  • Monitoring

The Management page gains options related to configuring security. The Dev Tools page gains a Search Profiler and a Grok Debugger. Where these and other X-Pack features are mentioned in this documentation, we’ve added an icon to clearly indicate that what you’re reading pertains to features available only in X-Pack.
