Arrays of objects


My arrays of objects are getting unknown type in kibana.

http": {
"http_headers": [
"host": "",
"user_agent": "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20110319 Firefox/3.6.16",
"referer": "",
"cmd": "GET"
"date": "Sat, 30 Apr 2011 07:02:07 GMT",
"cmd": "HTTP"

Its saying "objects in array are not well supported".

What should I do ?

What do you mean?

I guess you should see in Kibana fields like for example.

If it's a pure Kibana question, I'd suggest to move your question to kibana.

Hi @dadoonet.

Thanks for reply.

Its not kibana question, in kibana interface we are seeing that "http.http_headers" field is getting unknown type (?). We have also set mapping like below :slight_smile:

"http-alt": {
"properties": {
"http_headers": {
"type": "nested"
My question is what will the data type so that we avoid such unknown type.

Thanks in advance.

As described in the error message, Kibana does unfortunately not currently support nested mappings. there is also an issue open around how nested fields are reported to Kibana. What are you trying to do with these fields?
