Weird behavior Kibana and Metricbeat dashboards

Im having trouble to get the Metricbeat dashboards to work, testing configurations, this is the one that gives me best result but still are some problems.

setup.dashboards.enabled: true "/usr/share/metricbeat/kibana"
setup.dashboards.index: "test*" "test_mtb"
setup.template.pattern: "test_mtb*"

  hosts: ["myip"]
  username: "myusr"
  password: "mypass"
  index: "test"

setup.ilm.enabled: auto
setup.ilm.rollover_alias: "test_mtb"
setup.ilm.pattern: "{now/d}-000001"

Weird case one:
this configuration doesn't create a kibana index pattern but most of the: "[Metricbeat System] Overview ECS" dashboard, and the "[Metricbeat System] Host overview ECS" dasboard works! WITHOUT A KIBANA INDEX PATTERN!

Weird case two:
some visualizations, in the dashboards mentioned before gives me this error:

Could not locate that index-pattern (id:test*), [click here to re-create it](#/management/kibana/index_pattern)

so what I did was create a kibana index pattern (test*) get the id of the index, pasted it in the visualization json and now that visualization works!

[ {
    "name": "kibanaSavedObjectMeta.searchSourceJSON.index",
    "type": "index-pattern",
    "id": "test*" # replaced this for the id of the index

Visualization without index patterns?

Visualization with a name instead of an ID?

What the F*** is going on?

elastic and kibana version 7.5.1
metricbeat version 7.6.1

Hi @ElasticLiver

I'm also having some hard time with Metricbeat 7.6.1. Could you take a look in a post a published some days ago an see if you have some similar scenario?
