I have a really strange issue that I have not seen within Kibana before. I created index templates for my apache log files, which I have parsing with FileBeat/Logstash.
When the templates are in Elastic and I dump in the log data. The indexes are created and are using the template, but I cannot create an index pattern in Kibana to see the indexes. Kibana does not see the indexes but I see them in elastic from the "Dev Tools"
if I dump the data in elastic, with "no" templates, then they show up in "Index Patterns" and I can create the pattern and see the data in Kibana.
Again, using templates, I do not see the indexes under "Index Patterns" within Kibana, but the indexes are in Elastic.
