Step 6: Loading the Kibana Index Patternedit

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:

./scripts/import_dashboards -only-index

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.
