Where is configuration stored?


When you create index patterns, mappings for fields, visualizations, dashboards, etc in kibana, where are these settings stored? When I reinstall my system I'd like to be able to restore everything to exactly how it was.

I'm using kibana for logstash, I don't need the actual logstash entries saved, just the configuration. In /etc/kibana/kibana.yml it doesn't have any of this config.

Kibana stores its data in an Elasticsearch index. By default, this is .kibana but can be changed with the kibana.index setting.

I would recommend using snapshot and restore to backup the data in this index.
