Connect the Wazuh App with the API

In this section, we'll register the Wazuh API (installed on the Wazuh server) into the Wazuh App in Kibana:

  1. Open a web browser and go to the Elastic Stack server's IP address on port 5601 (default Kibana port). Then, from the left menu, go to the Wazuh App.

  1. Click on Add new API.

  1. Before filling out the fields, go to your Wazuh server and using the command prompt as root set a non-default credentials to protect your Wazuh API, replace your desired username for myUserName.:

# cd /var/ossec/api/configuration/auth
# node htpasswd -c user myUserName

Do not forget to restart the API to apply the changes:

# systemctl restart wazuh-api
# service wazuh-api restart
  1. Fill Username and Password with appropriate credentials you created in previous step. Enter http://MANAGER_IP for the URL, where MANAGER_IP is the real IP address of the Wazuh qserver. Enter "55000" for the Port.


If you have followed the Wazuh Documentation for Nginx, the URL must be https://localhost.

  1. Click on Save.
