Create aliace name for fields in discover


(al) #1

my fileds name in index are :category_code, userdata1,userdata2 ,userdata3 .

for events by category_code= 1 then userdata1 means name ,userdata2 means family ,userdata3 means phone
for events by category_code= 2 then userdata1 means ip ,userdata2 means domain ,userdata3 means mac_address
and many other category_codes

i have to saved discovery for category_cods , for clarity i need save some alias name for those fields.but there is nothing to do that.
i dont like do this in logstash or change data structure.

Changing the data structure and use meaningful names sound like the right thing to do.

in sql server reporting service we can do this like a charm .
and in kibana discover need something like that ,please make it.

The real issue here is that some places in Kibana allow you to specify a display name for a data point, and others do not. Saved searches stand out here as a place where you cannot. It would definitely be a useful feature for creating more user-friendly dashboards.
