Cannot add filters


(Alex) #1

I cannot add a new filter in Kibana if a custom filter is already present.

Repro:

  1. In Discover tab, expand a log entry.
  2. Add a filter for any value (click on the looking glass with plus sign in it)
    Result: a new filter is added to the filters bar.
  3. Repeat step 2 for a different field.
    Result: a new filter is added to the filters bar.
  4. Edit the last filter. E.g. enclose the existing "match" clause into a "bool|should" clause.
  5. Repeat step 2 for a different field.
    Result: NO new filter is added.

Basically, as soon as I edit a filter I cannot add any new filters after that. And so I'm unable to further filter the query results using the filters functionality. I can, of course, use the search bar and type queries there, but that is much slower and much less manageable than point-and-click filters interface.

Hi Alex,

I reproduced it and filed this issue. https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/9382

It would be helpful if you added what version of Kibana you were on if it was something other than 5.0.2 that I reproduced it on. Also, feel free to add another other comments if I missed something.

Thanks,
Lee

Looks like it's been fixed and will be in the 5.1.1 release https://github.com/elastic/kibana/pull/8614

which just happened this morning!
