Archiving Your Beat Dashboards

The Kibana dashboards for the Elastic Beats are saved under the kibana directory. To create a zip archive with the dashboards, including visualizations and searches and the index pattern, you can run the following command in the Beat repository:

make package-dashboards

The Makefile is part of libbeat, which means that community Beats contributors can use the commands shown here to archive dashboards. The dashboards must be available under the kibana directory.

Another option would be to create a repository only with the dashboards, and use the GitHub release functionality to create a zip archive.

Share the Kibana dashboards archive with the community, so other users can use your cool Kibana visualizations!
