For Kibana(part of the ELK) stack no out-of-the-box script exists to install and run it as a windows service. (This in contrast to ElasticSearch which has a batch file that allows you to install it as a windows service).
As a workaround you can use NSSM; the Non-Sucking Service Manager.
With NSSM you can take any executable and run it as a windows service.
Here are the steps to use it:
- Download NSSM.
- Extract the zip and put the nssm.exe executable on a location of your choice.
- Run nssm install <servicename> ; .e.g. nssm install kibana
- This will open up a configuration window where you can specify the executable you want to run and configure some other service related settings
- Click on Install service.
