Why read this?

This technical paper explains how to:

  • prepare an IBM Bluemix environment
  • bind the Elastricsearch service to your app
  • configure Kibana and deploy it to Bluemix
  • start exploring Elasticsearch data with Kibana

The document provides the necessary code samples and command line interface commands. The guidelines can be used for scenarios when you set up Kibana in a Bluemix environment and it is not possible to work outside Bluemix due to security limitations or other reasons.
