To get started creating a dashboard click Create a dashboard.
If you haven't configured a dashboard before the Kibana interface will walk you through the process to add a visualization.
Click Add in the menu bar and select a visualization from the list. If you have multiple visualizations, use the filter to refine the visualization list.
Haven't created a visualization yet?
If you haven't created a visualization yet, click Add new Visualization. See Creating visualizations for more information.
To add a saved query, click the Saved Search tab and select a query from the list. If you have multiple saved queries, use the filter to refine the query list.
The visualization and query elements in a dashboard are housed in panels that can be customized.
Click and hold the top of a panel and drag to the desired position.
Click and drag the bottom right corner of a panel to the desired size.
Click the gear menu in the upper right corner of a panel for additional options.
- Edit visualization - Open a visualization in the Visualize screen or a query in the Discover screen
- Customize panel - Rename a panel title
- Full screen - Expand a panel to full screen (select Minimize to restore the panel to regular size)
- Delete from dashboard - Remove a panel
Deleting from dashboard
Removing a panel from the dashboard does not delete the saved visualization or query.
To save a dashboard:
- Click Save
- Enter a name for the dashboard (and an optional description, if desired)
- Click Save
Optionally, select Store time with dashboard if you want to save the selected time filter with the dashboard.
