One of the steps in creating a HoriZZon dashboard in Kibana is creating an index pattern for the dashboard. The dashboard uses an index pattern to retrieve the data from your model package or project. Each model package or project gets its own index when it is stored on the Team Server. To make sure your dashboard uses the data from the right model package or project you need to find the index of this model package or project.

The indices of the model packages and projects are always named dashboard-<number>-<ID>, where <ID> represents the ID of the model package or project.

Steps:

  1. In HoriZZon, open the page of the model package or project that you want to use for the dashboard.

  2. The URL of the page contains an ID. Remember that ID.



  3. In the Kibana sidebar, go to Management > Index patterns.

  4. Click Create index.

  5. In Index pattern, type dashboard-*-<ID> where <ID> is the ID found in the URL. Example: dashboard-*-9.

    The associated index is directly shown.



  6. Complete the name of the found index in Index patttern, and click Next step.



  7. Click Create index pattern.


 You have now created an index pattern for your dashboard. You can continue creating the visualizations in Kibana.


If you want to use information from multiple model packages and/or projects in your dashboard, add more index patterns.
