First off, we use Kibana 4.6.0 (and no we dont upgrade to 5.x in the near future )
we are using daily time-based indices in our ES-cluster where we close the oldest ones to save some heap memory.
Today one of my colleagues did a query 3 months in the past and wondered that he got no results.
As i looked in our cluster, 1 month of the data were in closed indicies, so we were very surprised that Kibana dont show any "critical error" message when u query closed indices, since this leads to the assumtion that there is no data for the user, while it is only in closed indices.
Is this expected behaviour for this version of Kibana or some kind of bug?
Any feedback is appreciated.
