Coding in kibana

Why is it that when I search Kibana help, everyone is explaining with code, but on my kibana, it is really just buttons to click and visualise your data? is it about the different versions? or is there an extra extension I need to add?

Can you provide an example link, of what you mean with "explaining with code"?

If you are referring to the Canvas functions, you can open the expression editor in the lower right corner to see the underlying code for individual elements.

something like this?

You're right that most of Kibana is based on clicking. Some visualizations let you extend the queries with JSON, while Canvas has many places to extend. If you do want to run an Elasticsearch DSL query, the main way of doing this is via the Vega visualization type.
