Kibana Plugin API Changes in 7.0

By Raya Fratkina

7.0 has a lot of new functionality and a few changes to the Kibana Plugin APIs.

Kibana management index pattern URL changes

Kibana management URLs pertaining to index patterns have been changed to accurately reflect their content, from management/kibana/index or management/kibana/indices to managemen/kibana/index_pattern or management/kibana/index_patterns.
Impact: References to these URLs will need to be updated.
