Does kibana support fuzzy search?

Does Kibana support fuzziness in the search input box on the top of the Discover page?
I tried as what shows in the https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.5/query-dsl-query-string-query.html#query-string-syntax fuzziness,
but returned o result. I am using Elasticsearch 6.5.

Hi there, yes the search input box in Discover supports fuzziness. Have you tried using the ~ operator? See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.5/query-dsl-query-string-query.html#_fuzziness for more info.

I tried "JetBeats" and returns all the documents with Carrier field value of "JetBeats". But when I tried"JetBeat~", it says: "No results match your search criteria".
So why?

Have you tried Carrier:Jetbeat~? Would you mind sharing a screenshot?

Ah, I think you might be using the new Kibana Query Language. KQL doesn't currently support fuzzy matching. If you click the "Options" button on the top right, you should be able to disable it and revert to the old Lucene syntax, which does support fuzzy matching:
