Alias with custom timestamp - time Field Name


(Mike W) #1

I know how to update index with custom timeFieldName, I also know how to create an alias, but I do not know how to create an alias of an index with custom timeFieldName.

Target? To have one index, with multiple aliases pointing to different time field names as I have to create graphs based on different timestamps from the same index.

Are you referring to the Alias datatype? With that, it should be strait forward to come up with a unified field name for your timestamp.

But basically I've used this: https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/16705#issuecomment-373890873
