Archiving Your Beat Dashboards

The Kibana dashboards for the Elastic Beats are saved under the etc/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 etc/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!
