I attended ElasticOn Boston and was told that there is documentation online for the REST API to export / import Kibana visualizations and dashboards. I can't for the life of me find it. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Ken, thanks for coming to the event! I believe this is the documentation you're looking for: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/master/saved-objects-api.html. In Kibana parlance "saved objects" refers to the entities Kibana persists in Elasticsearch, e.g. visualizations, dashboards, saved searches, and index patterns.
Exactly.. thank you!
By the way, if you want to export dashboards with all of the associated visualizations, etc. then I recommend trying out our Dashboard import/export API: https://github.com/elastic/kibana/pull/10858. It's much easier to use than the generic import/export API. It's not yet documented but the PR outlines how to use it. Let me know if you try it and encounter any issues!
