Scripts/import_dashboard doesn't exist


(Sven Hans Knecht) #1

I just installed heartbeat on an elk server to test. I'm trying to import the dashboards, however while I can find the dashboards themselves I cannot find the /scripts/import_dashboards. The docs here: Import Dashboards say it should be in the heartbeat folder. I've check /etc/heartbeat and it doesn't exist there. I've downloaded the zip file and it doesn't exist there.

I've found a scripts folder under /etc/elasticsearch, import-dashboards isn't there. I can't seem to find it. Any pointers?

What version of Heartbeat are you using? The docs you linked to are for 5.6. Probably you are running 6.0 so see https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/libbeat/6.0/breaking-changes-6.0.html#breaking-changes-import-dashboards.

I'm using 5.6 for ELK and Heartbeat.

I see the import_dashboards tool in the 5.6 packages that I just downloaded. I tried the tar.gz files for mac and linux. Both have it. What package type and OS are you using?

RPM for CentOS.

I found them if I download the Linux-64Bit tar file.

Is there a reason they aren't part of the RPM package?

It is in the RPM that I just downloaded.

$ rpm -qpil heartbeat-5.6.0-x86_64.rpm  | grep import_dashboards
/usr/share/heartbeat/scripts/import_dashboards

I didn't find that path. Sorry, and thanks for your help!
