Getting Started

X-Pack reporting is automatically enabled when you install X-Pack into Kibana.

To manually generate a report:

  1. Open Kibana in your web browser and log in. If you are running Kibana locally, go to http://localhost:5601. To access Kibana and generate reports, you need the kibana_user and {xpack-ref}/secure-reporting.html[reporting_user] roles.
  2. Open the dashboard, visualization, or saved search you want to include in the report.
  3. Click Reporting in the Kibana toolbar:

  4. Click Printable PDF.

If you want to automatically generate reports from a script or with Watcher, use the displayed Generation URL. For more information, see {xpack-ref}/automating-report-generation.html[Automating Report Generation].
