Identify auto-refresh enabled dashboards


Is there a way to find dashboards that have enabled auto-refresh?

Some of our users have configured them to the minimum refresh rate (every 5 seconds) and leave it open all the time which causes a constant load on Elasticsearch cluster.

Is it possible to find all of these dashboards by searching the .kibana index? Also, is it possible to disable them, or configure them to a larger refresh rate in a batch from the backend?


Yes, you can identify them by running e.g this query in Kibana's Console

GET .kibana/_search?q=dashboard.refreshInterval.value:5000 AND dashboard.refreshInterval.pause:false

And you can edit them in Management / Saved Objects , but only one after another. So to patch in a group them you'd need to write a custom script.

Hope this helps,
