How to use this image
You can run the default
kibana command simply:
$ docker run --link some-elasticsearch:elasticsearch -d kibana
You can also pass in additional flags to
$ docker run --link some-elasticsearch:elasticsearch -d kibana --plugins /somewhere/else
This image includes
EXPOSE 5601 (default

$ docker run --name some-kibana --link some-elasticsearch:elasticsearch -p 5601:5601 -d kibana
You can also provide the address of elasticsearch via
ELASTICSEARCH_URL environnement variable:
$ docker run --name some-kibana -e ELASTICSEARCH_URL=http://some-elasticsearch:9200 -p 5601:5601 -d kibana
Then, access it via
http://host-ip:5601 in a browser.
docker stack deploy or
version: '3.1' services: kibana: image: kibana ports: - 5601:5601 elasticsearch: image: elasticsearch
docker stack deploy -c stack.yml kibana (or
docker-compose -f stack.yml up), wait for it to initialize completely, and visit
http://host-ip:5601 (as appropriate).
