Creating Kibana dashboards with pretty URLs

In previous versions it was possible to define the URL for a dashboard, but not anymore. Kibana dashboards are Elasticsearch documents themselves, and the document ID is used as the URL - Elasticsearch allows specifying the ID, but Kibana does not expose that option through the GUI, so we end up with auto-generated IDs like b3dfa3d0-02e3-11e8-a13d-abb43f519a76. The simplest workaround seems to be to go to Management / Saved Objects, select the dashboard, export to file, delete the file, edit the _id field in the dashboard and import it. --tgr (talk) 00:28, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
