The fix is trivial, just add an "include apache::params" (or even just
"include apache") at the top of your kibana::apache class, like so:

$version = $kibana::params::parameters['version'],
) {
include apache::params
@file { $kibana::params::apache_config:

However, this conflicts with the class {} style declarations in your
apache/manifests/init.pp file. For best results, you should switch those
to use the "include" method as well.

Thanks for the response.

Can multiple classes include the same class. Let's say I instantiate
the apache class from manifests/nodes.pp which in turns includes
apache::params. Can kibana include apache::params then as well with no
conflict. I know you can't do this with the class {} style
declarations. Also, I thought the class {} style declarations were the
preferred way or is that just in the nodes.pp file?
Yes, with the "include" syntax, you can include a class multiple times
from different places with no conflicts. It's a no-op if the class is
already included.

The "include" method is the preferred syntax (in my opinion, but I'm
sure other share it), due to this feature - particularly if you're using
hiera to pull configuration in. The only time you should be using the
class {} syntax is if you need to pass in class parameters and can't use
