Now I want to learn how to create dashboard using python script. I know how to do using manually by GUI

Normally, you have two ways as we practiced.

a) IP:9200/.kibana/doc/<doc_type>
b) IP:5601/api/saved_objects/<doc_type>

You may have issues to create index pattern when option A. However it is not supported for option B in lower version of Elastic stack like 5.2.

Thanks Steven

Do you have any example script? So that I can follow it

I did not have a sample yet, but I am able to give you some ideas.

a) Python module: requests
b) With open to loop directory/files in different types
c) Http headers: X-Pack/Kibana API/etc
