Can Kibana operate on unknown data?
A simple example:
Logstash imports from an SQL database. The database contains a table with, let's say, names of fruits, how many there are of each at a given date:
apple 2018-07-01 0
apple 2018-07-02 1
apple 2018-07-03 0
apple 2018-07-04 3
pear 2018-07-03 0
pear 2018-07-04 1
Now I want a visualization of the amount of apples over time. And the same goes for the pear, and so on. The key point being that the fruits are unknown. I just want charts for whatever is there, and that they are created automatically somehow (every morning would be sufficient).
Given the facts that you're advised not to use the .kibana ES index , and that the Kibana Saved Objects API is experimental , is poorly documented and has known issues : How do I get Kibana to dynamically generate visualizations like this? Is it even possible? Or do I need a plugin?
