Project description

Elasticsearch Kibana CLI (eskbcli)

PyPi Python Versions Build Status Read the Docs License

ElasticSearch Kibana CLI (eskbcli) provides a shell interface to query an ElasticSearch backend via the Kibana frontend which is useful in situations where the ElasticSearch backend is not otherwise accessible.

ElasticSearch Kibana CLI makes it possible to copy-paste query expressions directly from the Kibana user-interface and then easily access very large sets of result data. This makes the eskbcli useful in SecOps situations where the ability to rapidly move from a Kibana query to raw data is valued.

Configuration options are available to adjust http-headers so-as-to enable access to Kibana in situations that require complex user-authentication such as when Kibana exists behind an OAuth reverse proxy or other session- based authentication arrangement.
