How to get the "Advanced Settings" from the Dev Tools?


I'm using Kibana 6.5 and I would like to set the advanced settings in a script or similar without the need of the WebUI.

I saw this thread: Advanced settings via config file possible?
and it looked like what I wanted, but it didn't work for me I have made some changes to the advanced settings but when I run the GET that in that thread I get 0 hits back

  "took" : 0,
  "timed_out" : false,
  "_shards" : {
    "total" : 1,
    "successful" : 1,
    "skipped" : 0,
    "failed" : 0
  "hits" : {
    "total" : 0,
    "max_score" : null,
    "hits" : [  ]

Is there another way to do it in 6.5? should I use some other path?

I currently use this:

GET .kibana/config/_search

Ah yeah, it's a little outdated. Elasticsearch is deprecating types so we moved types into the document in 6+.

GET .kibana/_search
  "query": {
    "term": {
      "type": {
        "value": "config"

Thanks so much! @jbudz

I did find just the normal .kibana/_search but didn't know what to look for there since I had over 300 hits but it only showed the first 10.

But the query you gave me works great!
