Can we backup log in kibana

Hi can we backup our log in kibana?

Which log are you referring to?

i have pull syslog from network device into elastic search... i want to backup this log..thats all..thank you..

Ok, you want to backup the indices (that contain the logs).

You can use snapshot and restore for that.

hey may i know the step to create the snapshot and restore? i'm still not familiar with the function inside the kibana...thank you for help me..

Take a look at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/snapshot-repositories.html

What should i do for this..Do i need to register a repository?

Yep.

Where should i choose? Shared file system or Read only IRL?

Then, Should i enable source-only snapshots?

Please read the documentation - see the Learn More links - on each of these, then let us know if you have further questions :slight_smile:
