Kibana 5.4 view and dashboard saved names changed into internal names


#1

In Kibana 5.4, when saving a new view or dashboard, the name I chosen would be changed into an internal encoded name.

This makes me unable to use my chosen name to retrieve the dashboad just created. I have to use the unfamiliar internal name for the newly created dashboard, which makes my coding life miserable.

Why does Kibana do name change?

One reason Kibana was changed to use an ID was so that you could rename a visualization and not break a dashboard it was embedded in. Also there were some bugs that were addressed by the change where a user would rename an object but the ID didn't change.

Are you using the Sharing feature?

Are you using a query? You can query by title like this;

GET .kibana/visualization/_search
{
  "query": {
    "match_phrase" : {
      "title": "MySQL open files"
    }
  }
}
