Re-creating Kibana 3 dashboards in Kibana 4

This video walks you through how to manually rebuild a very typical Kibana 3 dashboard in Kibana 4.

Some highlights

  • Adding saved search to the dashboard to get a raw document view
  • Configuring the "Logstash Dashboard" in Kibana 4
  • Re-creating equivalents of "terms", "hits", "table", "histogram", "bettermap", "stats" panels
  • Add and modify filters and queries at the top of your dashboard
  • Adding finishing touches, such as the dark theme
