Kibana Library Cookbook
A library cookbook for installing kibana 4.
If you wish to install Kibana3 try using the '1.3.x' releases of the cookbook.
This is a library cookbook, you can use you included
kibana_lwrp::install recipe to install kibana, but it is more likely to be really useful for you to call the LWRPs directly from your own cookbook. You can use the
kibana_lwrp::install recipe as a guide and customize to your needs.
This cookbook is tested and works well with the
logstash and the
elasticsearch cookbooks found on the chef community site.
If you'd like to point kibana to a cluster of Elasticsearch servers instead of a single node, please review the most current recommended instructions at: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/production.html#load-balancing
As with most cookbooks I write, this one is hopefully flexible enough to be wrapped by allowing you to override as much as possible
attributes/*.rb for attributes ( documented inline )
The default recipe does nothing except for allow access to the LWRPs.
This is designed to be an example recipe to show you how you might write a wrapper cookbook. However it should be usable for a simple install of kibana.
- install kibana4
/opt/kibana/XXXXand create a symlink called
currentin the same directory.
nginxand serve the kibana application
If you wish to swap
nginx, simply set
apache in a role/environment/node somewhere.
If you don't want this cookbook to handle the webserver config simply set
'' in a role/environment/node somewhere.
Please note that in this case you have to set
Both cookbooks, by default, will configure the appropriate proxy to your ElasticSearch server such that you don't have to expose it to the world.
There is NO security enabled by default on any of the content being served.
If you would like to modify the
apache parameters, you should:
- create your own cookbook i.e.
- copy the template for the webserver you wish to use to your cookbook
- modify the template as you see fit (add auth, setup ssl)
- use the appropriate webserver template attributes to point to your cookbook and template
examples of using the LWRPs. Don't use this directly.
