Using Metricbeat 6.7.2, Elasticsearch 6.7.0, Kibana 6.7.0
I'd like to be able to "pre-load" selected Beats dashboards into a Kibana/Elasticsearch instance before setting up any client Beats instances or modules. When I create the cluster instance, I also bring in the Metricbeat and Packetbeat JSON files for dashboards, copied from /usr/share/metricbeat/kibana.
When I attempt to use the Kibana UI to load the JSON files from /usr/share/metricbeat/kibana, I receive the error message: "Saved objects file format is invalid and cannot be imported."
Before I dig into the code, could someone enlighten me as to why the dashboard JSON files cannot be imported directly as "saved objects"?
Thanks in advance,
