(Rajeev) #1

Hi All,

I am trying to create a dashboard pro grammatically.I am using elastic search 2.1.1 ,log stash 2.1.1 and Kibana 4.3.1

Kindly help.

You can either write directly to the .kibana index or use the URL structure to create dynamic dashboards (though the latter requires you already have saved visualizations you're combining).
