WARNING: Version 5.1 of Kibana has passed its EOL date.
This documentation is no longer being maintained and may be removed. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
Kibana 4.0 introduced a major architectural overhaul. As a result, the
.kibana schema changed so significantly that upgrading from Kibana
3.x requires recreating all visualizations, dashboards, etc.
If you’re upgrading from 3.x, please follow the installation instructions to install Kibana from scratch, and then manually recreate your searches, visualizations, and dashboards.
