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
