Kibana: regex as index pattern

Is it possible to use regex to define a Kibana index pattern? Many of my index names are UUID's, and I am not able to create an index pattern to match them other than "*", which will of course include all the other non UUID index names as well.

If I could use the following regex: [0-9a-f]{8}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{4}-[0-9a-f]{12} to match all the UUID index names, that'd be great, but sadly this does not work.


The only wildcard that is supported is *. Any of the documented behavior in Elasticsearch's multiple indices work in Kibana.

You could also potentially use index aliases to get something close to what you're looking for.
