Hi, please could you show me what tutorial are you using? Do you give a try to Helm Charts?

If you tell me your deployment steps or tutorial URL, I can reproduce them in local k8s cluster using k0s and comment to you.

Anyway, I deploy Grafana+Loki with Helm charts, and is very simple to see and search the cluster logs.

helm install -n monitoring promtail \
--set config.lokiAddress="http://loki:3100/loki/api/v1/push" \

helm upgrade --install -n monitoring loki  \
--set persistence.enabled=true \
--set persistence.size=64Gi \
--set config.ingester.chunk_block_size=2048000 \
--set config.ingester.chunk_retain_period=500m \

I think that in your case, Kibana is using a wrong service name. You need to check your services, configmaps, and deployments.

Do not hesitate to write if you think I can help you
