I have imported dashboard template using for metricbeat.
But below errors appears when I select any of the imported dashhboard.

My Environemnt
metricbeat-5.0.0 alpha5
kibana-5.0.0 alpha5

Do I need to fix the index-pattern json file ?

Did you load the metricbeat index template before loading the dashboard? Under 5.0 should be a keyword:

The index template is loaded automatically the first time you start metricbeat.

I have tried to load the dashboards before starting metricbeat for the first time, and I don't get this error when opening any dashboard. Could you please give us more details here? What version of Elasticsearch are you using?

Can you please let us know what value is returned by the following command? Is the value different than { }? Is it different than the metricbeat.template.json file or metricbeat.template-es2x.json if you are using the Elasticsearch 2.x, available in the metricbeat package?

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_template/metricbeat?pretty=true'

I also have the latest xpack installed.

[root@BS-POC-Test-Env bin]# ./kibana-plugin list

Regarding to _template API , it shows nothing ....

[root@BS-POC-Test-Env kibana]# curl -u elastic:elastic -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_template/metricbeat?pretty=true'
{ }

I have forgotten to import the template.

However, since I use logstash as a indexer, I manually imported the template as shown in the document.

The curl command returned empty result and I have missed this fact.

[root@BS-POC-Test-Env metricbeat]# curl -u elastic:elastic -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/_template/metricbeat' -d@/etc/metricbeat/metricbeat.template.json
curl: (52) Empty reply from server

As pointed in here,
I have added the -H option in curl command and now I have my dashboard working.

[root@BS-POC-Test-Env metricbeat]# curl -u elastic:elastic -H 'Expect:' -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/_template/metricbeat' -d@/etc/metricbeat/metricbeat.template.json
