Thanx for looking into this,below steps worked without any conflicts.
1)Downloading the export file with index pattern and dashboard.
2)Open the export file and edit
3)replace/rename -monitor- (old index pattern) with -monitoring-(new index pattern)
4)After renaming save the object
5)now import the ndjson file
Note :The latest Index template refering the latest index pattern is to be executed in devtools before above steps.
Will the same approch as above will work fine?,whts ur opinion. Is this the way its actually done
,or this is just work around.
This might be quite common and not sure whts the best way its done.For now the link was saviour.Going fwd all the Enviorments would have specific index pattern ex:Test,Quality,Prod with there index patterns.
I didnt get what exactly you meant by this:
You can also put a alias on top of the index so you can move stuff behind the screen without the need to change your visualizations
Naming is very much a thing that is decided internally by the team or company.
You can create a alias, which gives you the option to point searches and visualizations. The alias will redirect it to the indexes. So it makes changing things behind the alias much simpler if you ever decide to do so again.
