Change index dynamically in dashboard

(Alessio Frabotta) #1

Based on what I wrote on another post, I read that to dynamically reload a dashboard compared to a new index you must edit this section of the json file:

"kibanaSavedObjectMeta": {
        "searchSourceJSON": "{\"index\":\"01421930-5ff7-11e8-93dd-8314717cf9ad\",\"filter\":[],\"query\":{\"query\":\"\",\"language\":\"lucene\"}}"

But I do not understand where I can find the id of the new index:

My old index is called "dev-index" and new index is called "dev-index-2".
I don't know where to find the matching id.

I don't think it should replace "01421930-5ff7-11e8-93dd-8314717cf9ad" with "dev-index-2"
So, how can I do?


Hey @Alessio_Frabotta,

Based on what I wrote on another post

Could you please point to that post to get some more context on what you're trying to accomplish? Any details will be highly appreciated.

this is the discussion I was referring to:


I see, I believe this GUID/Id is identifier of the index pattern, not index.

You can get index pattern id with the following command e.g.:

  • Kibana 6.3+: curl -s http://localhost:5601/api/saved_objects/_find?type=index-pattern | json_pp
  • Kibana 6.2: curl -s http://localhost:5601/api/saved_objects/index-pattern | json_pp (don't have 6.2 handy, so haven't checked, but let me know if it doesn't work).

Or just open required index pattern in Kibana UI and take a look at the URL - id should be there.
