Access the score values in Visuals

Hi All,

I have setup my index in elastic search and have connected kibana to it. In the discover tab when i write a query i get my resulting documents which i know are sorted by a match score by Elasticsearch. How can i access this value in my visualizations? I can access the _score value in my discover table by including it in the metafields property. But the _score field is not available in my visualizations.

Is it possible to somehow fetch the score to the visuals? My aim is to bucket data into bars based on their score. Any help would be highly appreciated.


You're right, that doesn't seem possible. Furthermore, it appears support for _score in Kibana can use some improvement (for instance, see this issue
