Defining an index pattern in Kibana timing out

I have this json log file with only 307 records, but 1416 fields for each record. I loaded them into Elasticsearch, and now I'm trying to visualize them with Kibana, just like what I did with my other log files. I also like to note the other log files all contain tens of thousands of records, but with a fewer number of fields (100~200.)

But when I try to define an index pattern using a wildcard that would contain all 307 records, I get a fatal error saying the request timed out after 30 seconds.

I assumed this problem is due to the large number of fields, but I'm pretty new to Elasticsearch and Kibana, so I need help to see if there's a workaround for this. Maybe adding more nodes? I'm currently just using one node.

Any help would be appreciated.

On the Kibana end, you can increase the timeout for elasticsearch requests by changing the elasticsearch.requestTimeout setting in your kibana.yml.
