Chinthaka Rajapakshe asked on November 22, 2019

Hello,
I’m using Elasticsearch 7.1 stack and I tried to install the flexmonster plugin using git repo in here. https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-kibana.
The latest version of flexmonster not compatible with ELK 7.1 stack and I Installed the flexmonster old version 1.13, but I can’t start kibana after that.
Please advise.
Thanks.
Chinthaka.

Hello, Chinthaka,
 
Thank you for reaching out to us.
 
The reason seems to be that the version is specified as 7.1.1 instead of 7.1.0 in the package.json of the plugin: https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-kibana/blob/v1.14/package.json
 
We kindly suggest the following:
 
1) Download the plugin from our GitHub repository.
2) Extract the archive and in package.json change the Kibana version to 7.1.0
3) Repackage the plugin. Make sure the structure of the plugin is the same as here: https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-kibana/releases/download/v1.23/flexmonster_pivot-v1.23.zip
4) Navigate to Kibana bin/ folder and install the plugin according to the steps in our guide: https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-kibana#step-1-install-flexmonster-pivot-plugin
5) Then enable CORS for Elasticsearch and Kibana: https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-kibana#step-2-enable-cors-for-elasticsearch
 
 
Another solution is to update Elastic to 7.3.2 version and use the 1.21 version of the plugin.
This is the latest supported version at the moment. Details can be found here: https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-kibana#requirements
 
 
Please let us know if this works.
 
Best Regards,
Vera

Hello Vera,
 
I installed plugin successfully and show the error in syslogs like that. When I renamed the “FlexmonsterPivotTable.js” like this it worked for me. Seems it’s case sensitive.

Hello, Chinthaka,
 
Thank you for your reply.
 
We kindly suggest restarting Elasticsearch and Kibana.
Please check the browser console, Kibana, and Elasticsearch logs for additional information.
It may be that some configurations on either Elasticsearch or Kibana are missing.
 
Also, please consider upgrading Elasticsearch and Kibana to 7.3.2 version and using the 1.21 version of the plugin. This is the latest supported version of the plugin. 
 
You are welcome to contact us in case further questions arise.
 
Best Regards,
Vera
