This is a million12/kibana4 docker image with Kibana 4 for Elasticsearch. It's based on CentOS-7 and offers ability to provide any argument to kibana process.

This container is built that any extra parameters provided to docker run will be passed directly to kibana command. For example, if you run docker run [run options] million12/kibana4 -e http://elasticsearch_address:9200 you pass -e http://elasticsearch_address:9200 to kibana daemon.

ENV variables


Default: KIBANA_CONFIG=/opt/kibana/config/kibana.yml
If you mount your config to different location, simply edit it.

MARVEL_SUPPORT - Add support for Marvel Plugin. (true/false). false is default.

docker run \
-ti \
-p 5601:5601 \

Mount custom config , override some options

docker run \
-d \
-p 5601:5601 \
-v /my-kibana-config.yml:/opt/kibana/config/kibana.yml \
million12/kibana4 \
--elasticsearch http://elasticsearch_address:9200

Note: in this case config is mounted to its default location, so you don't need to modify KIBANA_CONFIG variable.
