I am interested to understand,
- Is it possible to reuse existing visualization with different indices.
and regarding customisation,
- Is it possible to customise any of the available visualisation type.
Additionally if any of the visualisation type is not available. How can we create or import that particular type. This is coming from as if business user can ask to represent data in type which is not provided by Kibana. How can we achieve this.
the short answer to both is no.
the long answer:
Is it possible to reuse existing visualization with different indices.: you can do this by modifying the actual saved object (Management > Saved Objects), and finding the index-pattern id, and replacing it in the visualizations.
Is it possible to customise any of the available visualisation type.: you might want to look into Kibana Canvas, where switching the viz-type is easier using the Canvas pipeline language. https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/canvas.html
You might be interested in a new R&D effort for Kibana, https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/31933, which aims to address both issues.
Thanks for the quick response.
