Saving searches enables you to reload them into Discover and use them as the basis for visualizations. Saving a search saves both the search query string and the currently selected index pattern.
To save the current search:
- Click Save in the Kibana toolbar.
- Enter a name for the search and click Save.
You can import, export and delete saved searches from Management/Kibana/Saved Objects.
To load a saved search into Discover:
- Click Open in the Kibana toolbar.
- Select the search you want to open.
If the saved search is associated with a different index pattern than is currently selected, opening the saved search changes the selected index pattern. The query language used for the saved search will also be automatically selected.
