How can I get list of index pattern in Kibana


I am building a Kibana (6.2.4) application and I need to get list of index pattern which I've created (like the Discover).

How can I do that ?

Regards ^^

You could use the following rest end point http://localhost:9200/_cat/indices?v This will list all the indices present in Elasticsearch.

When I issued this command I got something like this:

health status index                         uuid                   pri rep docs.count docs.deleted store.size

Thanks @rashmi :smiley:

I need list of index pattern, not the list of index.
Actually, I got my target (just for few minutes :sweat_smile:) !

This is my server.js:{
   index: ".kibana"
}, function (err,response) {

And in the app.js, I trait the response and get the list of hits where _source.type="index-pattern".

But this is working only if the index .kibana contains the list of index pattern created.
Is there another way ? Because I've a kibana docker where my app is running but I can't find any index with type index-pattern (I hope you understood me :sweat_smile: )

My Kibana container:

I already have a list of index pattern:


But in the .kibana index, I can't find any index-pattern :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Any explanation ?
