Step 6: Loading the Kibana Index Pattern

We don’t offer prebuilt dashboards for visualizing Filebeat data. However, to make it easier for you to explore Filebeat data in Kibana, we’ve created a Filebeat index pattern: filebeat-*. To load this pattern, you can use the script that’s provided for importing dashboards.

For more information about running the script, see Importing Existing Beat Dashboards in the Beats Platform Reference.

After you’ve created the index pattern, you can select the filebeat-* index pattern in Kibana to explore Filebeat data.

If you don’t see filebeat-* in the list of available index patterns, try refreshing the page in your browser.
