Hi I’m new with Elasticsearch, i want to export some logs from elastic to grafana so i can create a dashboard.

I followed the instruction of grafana documentation documentation, but i got this error when i try save .

Elasticsearch error: Bad Gateway

Elastic search turns on localhost:9200, the name of the index and the other information are correct, you will find my configuration below

If it is running locally you need to use

yes, I’am using both of them on my computer, I use the docker version

A solution to “Elasticsearch error: Bad Gateway” that worked for me:

Both Elasticsearch and Grafana containers need to be on the same network.

If you are using Docker, I advise you to install another container called “Portainer”. It’s a web interface where you can visualize and manage your Docker. From there, you could then very easily change or add a network to a container.
