If you are already using Kibana, you can import your visualizations and dashboards into Kibana on Logz.io.
1. First, you need to export your current visualizations, dashboards, and saved searches from your Kibana instance. Go to Settings --> Objects --> and click on Export. This will export a JSON file with all your visulaizations, dashboards, and saved searches. We recommend the full export because then you will be sure that you have all your objects -- if you were to export a single object, then it may not work if it is dependent on other objects.
2. Now, you need to find the index for your instance in Logz.io. The easiest way to do this is to log into your Logz.io account, then go to Kibana --> Settings --> Indices. The first paragraph contains your index. Simply copy the full index name, including the brackets and date pattern. An example is shown below in bold:
"This page lists every field in the [logz-xxxxbwmkaaasssdddfffggghhhaxxxzs-]YYMMDD index and the field's associated core type as recorded by Elasticsearch....."
3. Edit the JSON that you exported in Step 1 and search for \"index\" -- the value to the right of this is your index. Replace all occurrences of your index with your Logz.io index.
4. Before importing the modified JSON file, please make sure that the relevant logs are already shipped to Logz.io and that the Kibana mapping is refreshed.
5. Finally, import the JSON into Kibana. To do this, go to Kibana --> Settings --> Objects and use the Import option to import the JSON.
NOTE: If any visualization or dashboard did not import, the issue is most likely a field that is referenced in the visualization but not indexed within Logz.io. Please make sure that you are shipping the correct logs and that the Kibana mapping is refreshed.
