Forecasts on a dashboard

ML's Forecast feature is great, but is there any way to incorporate forecasts into visualisations (traditional, Timelion or otherwise)? If not, can regular visualisations, Timelion or some another plugin you'd recommend me to look into do some sort of forecasting and if so, where can I read up on that?

Thanks in advance!

This is not yes possible in Kibana, but it's on the roadmap for the ML team. Can't offer a timeline for it unfortunately.

Discovered this thread years after it was created. It turns out that yes, you can incorporate Elastic ML's forecast information into visualizations, it just takes a little bit of effort. Specifically, forecast results are stored in .ml-anomalies-* and are referenced by job_id and result_type:

job_id : "orders" and result_type : "model_forecast" 

(and if you have more than one forecast result within a specific timeframe you must also specify the forecast_id).

You can then plot the fields forecast_prediction, forecast_upper, or forecast_lower)
