Whats the best way to purge saved objects such as saved searches and visualizations that are not being used by a dashboard?

I have a bunch of beats dashboards and I am not currently utilizing all of them..

@Matt_Vasquez there's no automated way or built-in way to do this.

if you feel adventurous, you could write a script that queries the objects in the internal .kibana index.

http://localhost:9200/.kibana/_search

for all the ones where type: visualization and type: dashboard. Remove from that .kibana-index all the visualizations, that are not present in the panelJson of the dashboard object.

YMMV :wink:
