Fetch list in dropdown from newest in index

I made a drop down for the filter with the Controls type in kibana visualizations.
however it seem like this is starting the fetch from the beginning of the index, and if a keyword/value is indexed for the first time yesterday it will not find it.
Certain keywords was found only after i put in kibana.yml

kibana.autocompleteTerminateAfter: 6000000 

That is 6million. However the first 4million doc or so are quite old.
How can I rerverse the fetch for the dropdown?
Unique values are only a few hundreds or thousand.

anyone knows if this is even possible?

Don't think this is possible to reverse.

But you might want try use time filter option. This will filter list results using current dashboard's time range, hence should be faster for smaller time ranges.
