The saved objects API allows people to manage Kibana saved objects, including but not limited to dashboards, visualizations, and index patterns.
Traditionally, developers would perform this level of integration by writing
documents directly to the
.kibana index. Do not do this! Writing directly
.kibana index is not safe and it will result in corrupted data that
permanently breaks Kibana in a future version.
