Kibana Index Pattern via API

I have used API to create ES indexes. Unfortunately Kibana Index Patterns doesn't get auto-generated when we do that. I have tried using the following API call

curl -X POST "http://localhost:5601/api/saved_objects/index-pattern/iwantotestmyindexpattern" -H 'kbn-xsrf: true' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '
"attributes": {

It creates the index pattern but doesn't associate any fields with that which is already available part of the ES indicies.

Add a single field object to the saved object missing searchable, aggregatable, or readFromDocValues and the field list will be generated next time a user with index pattern edit privileges loads the index pattern. - src/plugins/data/common/index_patterns/index_patterns/index_pattern.ts:171

It should be noted that we aim to directly address this use case in future releases.

If I am using the elastic cloud version there is no way to achieve this correct. What you are suggesting is if we have a installed it ourselves.

My use case is to continuosly updates bulk csv data on a daily basis. What is the best way to solve this without having to use the Kibana UI.

Sorry, I communicated my intention poorly - thats the code my suggested change will trigger. You do not need to modify it.
