Using index-pattern ID is not clear at all.
For example i have a problem - i have dasboards, that use "winlogbeat-*" index-pattern and than i delete it (during trying fixing a problem). And that create it again. Now all my dashboards and visualisations are broken.
"Could not locate that index-pattern (id: winlogbeat-*), [click here to re-create it]" but this index-pattern exist!
I even can't import saved searches in JSON format - it generates same error. You cant "click here", because it is not a link. And re-creation of the same index-pattern doesn't help.
So, my questions:
- Why i cant use index-pattern name instead of id?
- Where can i find hardcoded IDs in dashboards, for example and change it?
- How can fix this problem and not re-create every visualisation and search?
