Tracking the lifecycle (creations, modifications) of visualizations and dashboards



I am wondering if it is possible to change the way Kibana stores all the visualizations and dashboards? basically, I want to know when and who the visualizations and dashboards get created, as well as when they get modified. And for the 'who', we are using SearchGuard so I should be able to get the current user's name.
the question is: is it possible to make kibana stores extra information in the .kibana index?

This would require coding this behavior in your own fork of Kibana at the moment. It does not support auditing of edits as you want. You might also put in a request for enhancement at the Kibana github repo.


Thank you for your quick response!

When you already have Search Guard in place you can use the auditlog to track changes to the .kibana index.


This is super helpful! Thank you soooo much, Nanda!
