Hi

i tried to get some elasticsearch stats inside kibana extracted by a logstah http_poller.
the name are so huge it's hard to select in drop down list (visualise menu).
is there a way to create alias to have shorter name?
thnks

While there currently isn't support for field aliases (see https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/1896), there is an advanced setting that could be helpful for you. If you go to Settings, then Advanced, you'll see the shortDots:enable setting :

Changing this to true will truncate your field names, so that something like "foo.bar.baz" will become "f.b.baz".

Hope this helps!
