Custom Metrics in Kibana


I couldn't find much on the internet that explained this. I followed the Custom Metrics page in the Elastic tutorials for using custom metrics with micrometer, but I was a bit confused how to use them in Kibana. Currently I can search for them in Dev Tools and in APM, but they do not show up as metrics that can be visualized.

Is this not currently supported? Is there something I need to manually customize to set this up to make dashboards?

Then you can search the index pattern to view them, or if you want to use the metrics screen, you can update the sources under settings:
