Unknown indexes created in kibana

Hi I have 2 indexes that I didnt create in kibana, one is call "UptimeIndexPattern", and the other is call "apm-*"

Anynone knows if there where created automatically by kibana, or anithing?

there is a programer using the api, but its very skillfull, I don think is hes doing.

Yes, Kibana creates them to store internal data. You can make check whether an index is a system:

  • navigate to Management > Elasticsearch > Index management
  • toggle “Include system indices”

Hi, Mikhail. I always disable the system indices, so I only view the indexes created by me, so the indices where showing without the include system indices enabled
