This topic describes how to log on to the Kibana console. After you purchase an Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch instance, Elasticsearch provides you a free Kibana node with one core and 2 GB of memory. The Kibana console supports data query, data visualization, and other features.

Prerequisites

To log on to the Kibana console, you must first purchase an Elasticsearch instance. Make sure that Public network access is Active.

Background information

Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch provides the Kibana console for you to scale your business. The Kibana console is a part of the Elasticsearch ecosystem, which has been seamlessly integrated into Elasticsearch. The Kibana console enables you to monitor the status of your Elasticsearch instances and manage these instances.

Procedure
