Bulk Get Objectsedit

Warning

This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release.

The bulk-get saved object API enables you to retrieve multiple Kibana saved objects by id.

Requestedit

POST /api/saved_objects/_bulk_get

Request Bodyedit

The request body must be a JSON array containing objects, each of which contains the following properties:

type (required)
(string) Valid options, include: visualization, dashboard, search, index-pattern, config, and timelion-sheet
id (required)
(string) ID of object to retrieve

Response bodyedit

The response body will have a top level saved_objects property that contains an array of objects, which represent the response for each of the requested objects. The order of the objects in the response is identical to the order of the objects in the request.

For any saved object that could not be found, an error object will exist in its place.

Examplesedit

The following example attempts to retrieve an index pattern with id my-pattern and a dashboard with id my-dashboard, but only the index pattern exists.

POST api/saved_objects/_bulk_get
[
  {
    "type": "index-pattern",
    "id": "my-pattern"
  },
  {
    "type": "dashboard",
    "id": "my-dashboard"
  }
]

A successful call returns a response code of 200 and a response body containing a JSON structure similar to the following example:

{
  "saved_objects": [
    {
      "id": "my-pattern",
      "type": "index-pattern",
      "version": 1,
      "attributes": {
        "title": "my-pattern-*"
      }
    },
    {
      "id": "my-dashboard",
      "type": "dashboard",
      "error": {
        "statusCode": 404,
        "message": "Not found"
      }
    }
  ]
}
