Elasticsearch fails in the middle of Kibana initialization, and this failure during initialization is critical to Kibana. If it fails, you must manually remove the index because it is in a broken state.

Perform the following steps to delete the Kibana index and restart the pod:
  1. Delete Kibana index.
    curl -XDELETE http://elasticsearch:9200/.kibana*
  2. Delete pod.

    After you delete the pod, Kubernetes creates a new pod.

    kubectl delete pods <POD-ID>
