As more documents are added to the indices you’re searching, the search results shown in Discover and used to display visualizations get stale. You can configure a refresh interval to periodically resubmit your searches to retrieve the latest results.
To enable auto refresh:
- Click the Time Picker in the Kibana toolbar.
- Click Auto refresh.
Choose a refresh interval from the list.
When auto refresh is enabled, the refresh interval is displayed next to the Time Picker, along with a Pause button. To temporarily disable auto refresh, click Pause.
If auto refresh is not enabled, you can manually refresh visualizations by clicking Refresh.
