kibana running on docker: how to save dashboard?

I am running kibana 5.2.1 from docker. I am using this image: FROM

The problem is if I remove the container the work done on kibana will be lost.
How can I save kibana dashboard on docker instance?

    Based on this question, it looks like it saves into elasticsearch, so you don’t need to mount a shared volume.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
