Hey @Sunil_Edupuganti, every Visualization only works against a single index/index-pattern. You can use wild-cards when specifying your index pattern. For example, you could use an index-pattern of logstash-* that will report data in indices that match that pattern. This is further explained here. This is primarily useful when you have multiple indices that have the same fields, and you'd like to see data from all of the indices. If the indices have completely different fields, using these index-patterns won't be that helpful.

It's also possible to create visualizations against different indices entirely, and then add them to the same Dashboard. This allows you to create separate visualizations against strictly different data and look at the results at the same time.
