Column alias under Kibana

(alainc) #1


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?

While there currently isn't support for field aliases (see, 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 "" will become "f.b.baz".

Hope this helps!
