Overview of Kibana
Kibana for PeopleSoft provides rich analytics and visualization with performance enhancements – enabling better decision-making and improved understanding of your data.
Kibana analytics don’t affect transactional processing because analytics are run against Elastic indexes, not the transactional database. Kibana is easy to install, configure, and maintain, and it provides superior performance in rendering visualizations.
- Kibana was first delivered in PeopleTools 8.57 for technical administrators analyzing system and index metrics
- With PeopleTools 8.58, Kibana is integrated with the PeopleSoft user interface.
- As PeopleSoft security is applied to the application data, only authorized users can access Kibana and see the data to which they have permission. This is based on the same security that’s applied to search index data
