    -t ""       Configure timezone
                possible arg: "[timezone]" - zoneinfo timezone for container

The 'command' (if provided and valid) will be run instead of kibana

Any of the commands can be run at creation with docker run or later with
docker exec -it kibana (as of version 1.3 of docker).

Setting the Timezone

sudo docker run -it -p 5601:5601 -d dperson/kibana -t EST5EDT

OR using environment variables

sudo docker run -it -p 5601:5601 -e TZ=EST5EDT -d dperson/kibana

Will get you the same settings as

sudo docker run -it --name kibana -p 5601:5601 -d dperson/kibana
sudo docker exec -it kibana -t EST5EDT ls -AlF /etc/localtime
sudo docker restart kibana

Complex configuration

Example configs

If you wish to adapt the default configuration, use something like the following
to copy it from a running container:

sudo docker cp es:/opt/kibana/config /some/path

You can use the modified configuration with:

sudo docker run -it --name es -p 5601:5601 \
            -v /some/path:/opt/kibana/config:ro -d dperson/kibana
