Right now, the commands in the Kibana Dev Tools console appears to be tied to the browser. If you change computers or use a different browser session, it is gone completely.
It is probably implemented this way because they are meant to be short-lived. In my use case though, I keep many frequently used management-related commands directly in the console so I can debug issues or get info quickly.
Here’s a sample of what I keep in the console:
GET /_cat/indices?s=index GET /_cat/indices?s=store.size GET /_cat/indices?health=yellow GET /_cat/allocation?v&s=node GET /_cat/aliases?v GET /_cat/health GET /_cat/nodes?v&s=name GET /_cat/nodeattrs?v&s=name GET /_cat/shards?v&s=index GET /_cat/templates?v&s=name GET /_cat/thread_pool?v&s=node_name GET /_cluster/allocation/explain GET _tasks
As I use these quite often, I find myself saving the entire console to a text file that I can retrieve when I am on a different computer. Can these in fact be saved?
Additionally (Feature Request):
I realize that the console is not intended as a control panel — but would you in fact consider having some type of dashboard / GUI that have a few buttons to define your own commands to run?
I feel that this would be very useful.
