Dynamic Metrics in Bar chart

Hi All,

I'm new to Kibana. I just want to create a bar chart with dynamic metrics.

I mean, if I have a filter with values a,b and c, if a is selected the bar chart will need to show count(a), if b is selected, count(b) and similarly for c.

Please let me know if it is possible in Kibana.


Hello Siva,

It sounds like you might want to do one of the following:

  • Create visualization for a, set it up the way you want, then duplicate it for b and c
  • Create a dashboard of visualizations, and filter by field
  • Use our fairly new interactive inputs

I think the last one sounds the most like what you're describing. Hopefully that should get you headed in the right direction!


Thanks for your reply, Aaron. You're saying that we could achieve this by 3 bar charts.

But, is it possible using a single bar chart? I mean, 1 bar chart with three metrics or expression or measure, which should be changing dynamically based upon the filter selection.
