I'm running the ELK stack locally on Ubuntu by simply unpacking into the user's ~/opt folder and then e.g. bin/kibana, per the basic instructions in the various elastic.io guides.
My use case is analysis of datasets consisting of pre-captured logs, and I'm running a fresh VM/container for each dataset.
I want to set up a load of searches/visualizations/dashboards that I can re-use in each VM/container. The idea is to spin up a fresh VM/container with the ELK stack, drop in the data, drop in the saved searches/visualizations/dashboards, run the ELK tools and have all the searches/visualizations/dashboards results magically appear.
However, I can't see where the various items are saved. Are they only the URLs, or are they stored to disk anywhere?
