Metricbeat default dashboards: how to load into specific space?

Hi,

I am on elastic stack 6.5.4.
In the past I created my own metricbeat visualizations and dashboards, but I would like to give the sample dashboards a try to check if they can replace mine or at least to get more inspiration.

Now with 6.5. we have the spaces available. For not blowing up I would like to import the metricbeat dashboards to a specific space I created before. How can I do it? It should not be visible in default space.

Thanks, Andreas

Hey @asp,

You can use the setup.kibana.space.id setting in your metricbeat configuration to specify which space to import dashboards into:

#============================== Kibana =====================================

# Starting with Beats version 6.0.0, the dashboards are loaded via the Kibana API.
# This requires a Kibana endpoint configuration.
setup.kibana:

  # Kibana Host
  # Scheme and port can be left out and will be set to the default (http and 5601)
  # In case you specify and additional path, the scheme is required: http://localhost:5601/path
  # IPv6 addresses should always be defined as: https://[2001:db8::1]:5601
  #host: "localhost:5601"

  # Kibana Space ID
  # ID of the Kibana Space into which the dashboards should be loaded. By default,
  # the Default Space will be used.
  space.id: "my-space"
