Can Kibana do more than visualize?

Once I search for and find a specific row (if that's the right word) in an index, I need some way to act on it, like send it to a kafka topic for example. Is there a way to do that in kibana, or do I need something else?

Logstash would do this. It has 3 modules. (input, filter, output).

In your case you would have an Elasticsearch Input to get the data you want.
Then you can change the data using filters if you want.
When that is done you output to a Kafka Topic.
