Best way to visualize data in a table?


#1

Hi all,

what is the recommended way to display data in a table?
Using Data Table visualization you have to define a metric, but if you just want to see all the events a metric makes no sense.
Using a Search gives the events table, but then you have the problem, that you can't sort the string columns:
Visualize: Fielddata is disabled on text fields by default. Set fielddata=true on [publisher] in order to load fielddata in memory by uninverting the inverted index. Note that this can however use significant memory.

But I don't think it is a good idea to enable fielddata on all field, isn't it?

Thanks and regards

You're right, perhaps saved searches need a way to allow sorting on field that isn't in source. Would you mind opening an issue at GitHub? https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/new
