Discover does not show any data for an index

Newbie here; I am am trying vulnwhisperer ( which consolidates all vulnerability data into elastic; I have gone through the install process. Data is being downloaded and ingested into elastic through logstash. What I see odd is that when I go to Discover and select index "logstash-vulnwhisperer-"; it shows no records.
If I go to dev tools and run following:
GET logstash-vulnwhisperer-
"query": {
"match_all": {}
I get lots of records. What can cause this issue with Discover? and how to fix that? any advice?

Hi @userelastic,

I go to Discover and select index "logstash-vulnwhisperer- ";

Discover works with index patterns, not indices. Have you created a correct Index Pattern for your index? How does it look like?

Hi @azasypkin; thanks for the reply; yes Index Pattern is created; I have attached the screenshot.

Good, I'm off for today, will give it a thought tomorrow. But can you double check that the time range (date/time picker at the top panel) in Discover actually covers the data you have (e.g. choose a very long one, 5 years or something like this)?

Yes; I tried that by setting period to last 5 years. Thanks for your help and hope to hear from you tomorrow.


  • Can you please also share a screenshot of the Discover page?
  • And, if possible, a tiny fraction of the data that is returned from this query:
POST logstash-vulnwhisperer-*/_search
  "query": {
    "match_all": {}

And also check whether you have any errors in the browser dev console, just in case. A

Hi @azasypkin; I end up removing everything and started from scratch; this time it worked fine and all the data is there including the dashboards too. Thanks for your help.

Ha, good to hear that you sorted it out!
