Count Metric goes to 0



I am very new to Kibana and Elasticsearch, I am trying to understand the visualizations and their options.

I have some example data in elastisearch, which I can see via the Dev Tools when running the default query. There, I have 46 entries, a couple of them are from the .kibana index, and the rest from my example data .example_data index.

I simply want to create a visual metric showing the entries for the .example_data index, which I thought might just be the easiest thing to start with. So I create a new Metric, choose "Count" and at first, the count actually is correct. However, after the dashboard refreshes again and again, it goes down 1 every time, until it is at 0. The data however is obviously still there. When I put in new data, the count goes up 1 immediately, but then goes down to 0 again.

I have also tried using "Unique Count" and setting the field to "_id". It just stays at 0. I have tried every field I have which is unique, nothing will bring up the actual count of the documents in the index.

I appreciate any help with this.

Try selecting different time range on top right corner of kibana dashboard.
What is there?
You must get all the data with time range as



Thanks a lot. I thought the Dashboard had a global state regarding the date. Didn't see that setting.
