Get default index pattern APIedit

[experimental] This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but experimental features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features. Retrieve a default index pattern ID. Kibana UI uses default index pattern unless user picks a different one.

Exampleedit

Retrieve the default index pattern id:

$ curl -X GET api/index_patterns/default

The API returns an ID of a default index pattern:

{
    "index_pattern_id": "..."
}

In case there is no default index pattern, the API returns:

{
    "index_pattern_id": null
}
