How to Persist Kibana Dashboards


We created a few kibana dashboards with corresponding search and visualization. We can export the json files and import them to other environments. But if Kibana is restarted we are losing all the dashboards which were imported in the previously running instance.

Can we specify a path in Kibana's configuration so that at the time of loading, it goes to that specified location and imports all the json files present there so that on restart of kibana we do not lose the dashboard?


Hello Arnav,

If you're saving your visualizations, they should still be there after kibana restart since they're persisted in elasticsearch. If you're losing elasticsearch data, you likely want to make sure your configuration is set to a reliable location.
