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
$ 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.
