Error fetching fields for index pattern metricbeat


Whenever I try to look at a Metricbeat dashboard, could be for anything, I get multiple spurious errors that pop up off to the side, Error fetching fields for index pattern metricbeat.*, see attached screenshot. And no data appears on the dashboard. We are running an older version of Kibana and all beats at 7.7.1, we can't upgrade these at this time and are staying at this version for now.

Can you please check what is the version of elasticsearch and kibana you are running? We have had some breaking changes between the versions.

Do you also have any scripted fields defined in here?


We are running version 7.7.1 and we don't have any scripted fields. I realize that the latest version is 7.12, but because we are running this in production and we don't have a schedule established yet to upgrade everything, we are unfortunately stuck at this version for now. Thank you for your help.
