Can we remove the date column from our reports?

I have seen topics about removing the date (time) column from the discover tableview and I understand it is not that easy.
But maybe there is an easy way to prevent this column from being included in the CSV reports ?

Not from the UI but if you copy the POST request from the CSV advanced options you can remove the date field from the columns key


My steps where:

  • Copy that POST URL to a text editor
  • Copy the jobParams parameter value into an HTML character decoder to easily detect the order_date (my date field) from the columns key and remove it.
  • Encode again the string
  • Put that back to a curl POST request and call that endpoint
  -X POST -H 'kbn-xsrf: true' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  • Get the CSV from the Kibana Reporting UI and confirm the order_date was not included.

Hope it helps.
