Kibana 3 and Elasticsearch 1.4 - CORS problem

Kibana 3 against ElasticSearch 1.4 throws an Connection Failed screen. The error text says to set http.cors.allow-origin, but it misses out the important http.cors.enabled: true

Working config:

$ grep cors elasticsearch-1.4.0.Beta1/config/elasticsearch.yml
http.cors.allow-origin: "/.*/"
http.cors.enabled: true

Thank you! I found this gist when googling for this exact issue. Enabling cors also resolved my problem.

This is pretty critical information that should at least be mentioned in the 1.4 changelog......

I have kibana faced by nginx (we need nginx for basic auth) on different host then elasticsearch and this workaround did`t resolve the problem. It only resolves the problem when kibana and ES on the same host.

hey guys,
I'm ruinning kibana and elasticsearch on the same servers, tried adding:
http.cors.allow-origin: "/.*/"
http.cors.enabled: true

but it still won't work.

any ideas?

EDIT:
I suggest everyone who's facing this problem reads "https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-logstash-and-kibana-to-centralize-and-visualize-logs-on-ubuntu-14-04"
though it's a little out-dated in terms of elasticsearch version, it made me understand what I did wrong (elasticsearch configuration).

After you added the cors settings in elasticsearch config don't reload the kibana page but click back or home button as the webpage says.
If you click refresh you just reload the same "kibana/index.html#/connectionFailed" error page.

I just ran into this problem last night. And it's also good to know one other thing

This didn't work:
http.cors.allow-origin: *

But this did:
http.cors.allow-origin: "*"

Be sure to have "http.cors.enabled: true" included in your .yml file as well.

Yes. For OS X El Capitan 10 using Chrome browser.
Adding the two lines to /usr/local/etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml
http.cors.allow-origin: "*"
http.cors.enabled: true
resolved the issue.
