So, I’ve been facing this issue for quite sometime now. Kibana behaves quite awkwardly. There are few points that I will highlight over here…
- When navigating to the Visualisations page on Kibana, sometimes I see the list of old visualisations that were created instead of the new ones. However, if I refresh the page or restart ES or logout , they disappear and I can then see the correct visualisations that I created. Although, refreshing the page or restarting ES doesn’t always help.
- On the dashboard, all of my visualisations fail to load and show a message inside each visualization container that says “could not find the index patter with xyz id” although the exact index pattern already exists and with the same index pattern ID too.
When I try to create a new visualisation and select the index patter, it shows me an error page saying index pattern not found although it exists under stack management menu with the same id.
Sometimes pages just go blank, example if I click on discover, it will show me a blank page!
Same thing caching/old data issue also occurs when I try to add a visualization to the current dashboard. One time it shows the older visualizations (which I deleted a while ago) and other times it shows the correct ones.
All of this is very frustrating!
