Hello Venkata Naresh,
Thank you for the details.
Could you please confirm that you have installed the latest plugin version:
https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-kibana/releases/tag/v1.16 ?

Also, does the following command completes successfully?

cd plugins/flexmonster_pivot
yarn upgrade

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Ian,
Thanks for your reply. I have followed all the steps you were mentioned and I used 1.16 version plugin, but still the plugin is not installing properly and I’m not seeing any icon on the kibana dashboard.
I’m attaching 4 files for your reference. Have a look and help me to solve the issue.

  2. yarn_upgradeStep.png: yarn upgrade success screen shot.

Hi I had same problem the first time you have to deploy kibana as root

sudo su
./kibana –allow-root

Hi Luis,
Thanks for your reply. Yes I tried running kibana with super user permissions and I’m able to install the plugin.
