Kibiter 6.1.4

Kibiter is a custom soft fork of Kibana which empowers GrimoireLab Panels with metrics & data visualizations.


There are several ways for installing Kibiter on your system: from releases, Docker images or source code.


Docker images

There are four Docker images of Kibiter, they have the following tags:

  • bitergia/kibiter:community-v6.1.4-X (being X the version of the release), the image that corresponds to the community version of Kibiter.
  • bitergia/kibiter:optimized-v6.1.4-X (being X the version of the release), the image that corresponds to the optimized version of Kibiter.
  • bitergia/kibiter:secured-v6.1.4-X (being X the version of the release), the image that corresponds to the secured (with Search Guard) version of Kibiter.
  • bitergia/kibiter:default-v6.1.4-X (being X the version of the release), the image that corresponds to the non-optimized version of Kibiter.

Source code

Clone the repository from the branch integration-6.1.4-<version>, where version can be //optimized//, //secured// or //community//.

git clone -b integration-6.1.4-<version>

Install the npm dependencies

cd grimoirelab-kibiter
npm install

Launch Kibiter



Kibiter provides several features, not present in Kibana, that have been developed for GrimoireLab. The most important ones are described below.

Panel menu

If you are using Kibiter with the GrimoireLab tools, you will see a quick menu at the top of the page, like the one below:

Panel menu

This menu allows you to navigate through the GrimoireLab panels, see its structure below:

New visualization plugins

Kibiter has several plugins installed by default, they improve the user customization and add more information to the dashboards. Clearly, they are all open source. The plugins are listed below:

  • Network plugin supports data visualization in a graph-style way.
  • Searchtables plugin improves Kibiter tables by adding a search box to perform searches without applying filters.
  • Radar plugin allows to explore the data using radar visualizations.
  • Dot plot plugin empowers Kibiter with dot-plot visualizations, granting to add metrics in both X and Y axis.
  • Polar plugin enhances Kibiter with polar visualizations for your data.

Version compatibility with Elasticsearch

Following the Kibana docs, you should be running Elasticsearch and Kibiter with matching version numbers. However, Kibiter will run (and log a warning) in case your Elasticsearch has a newer minor or patch number. Note that Kibiter won't be able to run, if your Elasticsearch has an older version number or a newer major number.

The table below shows some examples to illustrate the relationships between different types of version numbers.

Situation Example Kibiter version Example ES version Outcome
Versions are the same. 5.1.2 5.1.2 💚 OK
ES patch number is newer. 5.1.2 5.1.5 ⚠️ Logged warning
ES minor number is newer. 5.1.2 5.5.0 ⚠️ Logged warning
ES major number is newer. 5.1.2 6.0.0 🚫 Fatal error
ES patch number is older. 5.1.2 5.1.0 ⚠️ Logged warning
ES minor number is older. 5.1.2 5.0.0 🚫 Fatal error
ES major number is older. 5.1.2 4.0.0 🚫 Fatal error


We happily accept contributions, and we will help you in case you need. We follow the same contribution process that Kibana provides, thus have a look at:

If you find a bug or want to request a new feature, please open a issue on GitHub. To avoid duplicated issues, check the existing issues to make sure someone else hasn't already created a similar one.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
