Elastic Maximum Amount of Date Fields in an Index

I am looking for assistance regarding date fields in Elastic. I have a CSV file with 5 separate date columns, all formatted as ISO 8601 dates. After importing the file into Kibana, only the first 2 date columns were read as date fields. The remaining 3 were all read as strings. I have been searching for answers on this and have seen some say they are only able to import 2 date fields per index as well. I am looking for confirmation on if this is true or if there is a way to have more than 2 date fields per index. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi @rmarchman welcome to the community,

can you show us an example of the dates?

Welcome to our community! :smiley:

You can set as many date fields as you want, just use the advanced options when importing to set the types.
