I have the problem that i would like to use an index pattern as well as timebased events index and without timestamps. E.g. I want to know the total number of documents in an index and draw a datehistogram of when documents are created. But I have to tell if an index pattern contains timebased events when creating a pattern, this way I can not answer my first question as date range is always applied. A possible solution would be to register a pattern twice, with and without timestamps, but this is not possible at the moment as the second pattern creation would overwrite the first one.
Is there a way to use an index pattern containing events and ignore the timestamp so that no range query is used? Would it be an interesting feature otherwise to allow registration of a pattern with and without timestamps? Obviously pattern can not be used as an id here, so how about providing a meaningful name for a pattern?
