Track Visualization and Dashboard Usage

Hi All,

Is there any way to store/track Kibana Dashboard and visualization view counts and who is viewing them?
The best way I can find so far is manually searching the kibana.log for Dashboard/Visualization gets but it seems like there must be a better way?

Not an integrated way at this point. The best option would be to use Packetbeat with the http protocol on port 5601.

I have this installed and can see general traffic on the port, Is it also be able to break down the data by visualization/dashboard traffic?
I can't find the field/query needed to pull out queries that go to specific Dashboards/Visualizations.

You'll need to do that by looking at the URLs manually.

From what I can see packetbeat doesn't store the URLs containing Visualization/Dashboard IDs or Names when they are opened.

For example I see some entries like the below, but nothing that lets me track dashboard/visualization hits
