Aggregate Jenkins build logs stored in ElasticSearch/view in Kibana

(Darrien Glasser) #1

I believe this question is more relevant for ES, but may be answerable with just Kibana as well.

I'm storing my Jenkins build logs in ElasticSearch with the Jenkins Logstash plugin.

My configuration looks sort of like this:

That part works great, but I'd like to view the full log in Kibana.

The plugin incrementally sends the results to ES and breaks on each newline. That means a long log can look something like this in Kibana:

Where each line is a massive JSON output containing tons of fields I do not care about. I really only care about the message field.

I'm reading about aggregators right now that appear to be what I need, but my results are not coming out to what I'd like.

curl -X GET "localhost:9200/_search" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'
    "aggs" : {
        "buildLog" : {
            "terms" : {
                "field" : "data.url"

Prints out a large glob of json that does not have what I need.

In a perfect world, I'd like to concatenate every message field from each data.url and fetch that.

In SQL, an individual query for this might look something like:

SELECT message FROM jenkins-logstash WHERE data.url='job/playground/36' ORDER BY ASC

Where 'job/playground/36' is one example of every data.url.

How can I go about doing this?
