Still trying to get my head around indexes, templates and patterns.
I understand that its best practice to have metricbeat and filebeat to use separate indexes as their is potential for conflicts with fields (e.g one defines 'source' as and object and the other defines 'source' as an string).
So this is how default templates are setup for each beat.
I really would like to have a single 'dev-*' index pattern in kibana so that we can have a single dashboard containing visualization from different beats
with that in mind how is the setup.template.pattern property used by the beat when it setups up the template and dashboards? according to the documentation it tells elasticsearch that the template should be applied to every index that matches that pattern? How does the beat tell kibana which pattern to create.
So would the following properties be suitable?
