ElasticSearch/Kibana Dashboard Embed

I was happy to learn that ElasticSearch/Kibana dashboards are relatively easy to embed in Coda docs.

The settings I used:

  • Make sure you set the Kibana user (such as Demo) to include kibana_dashboard_user_only and be sure to add the index(es) used in the dashboard (see snapshot below).
  • Grab a Share link from the Kibana dashboard and be sure to use the Embed iFrame option with the shortened URL.
  • Copy only the URL from the iFrame code.
  • Create an embed formula and set Force to true. Embed("<kibana-embed-url>", 1024, 940, true)

Works pretty good.

[UPDATE] - It doesn’t play well in mobile Safari - won’t authenticate as a Coda doc embed.
