Fielddata=true


#1

Hi

I am using AWS ES and Kibana 6.3 with Logstash 6.3 and Metricbeat 6.3 on Centos 7.5.

On some fields in Kibana we're getting message:

The request for this panel failed.

Fielddata is disabled on text fields by default. Set fielddata=true on [system.process.name] in order to load fielddata in memory by uninverting the inverted index. Note that this can however use significant memory. Alternatively use a keyword field instead.

How do I remove this error message?

Regards
Per

It sounds like you may need to change the mapping for the system.process.name field in the index mapping created by Metricbeat. See also https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.3/fielddata.html#_fielddata_is_disabled_on_literal_text_literal_fields_by_default
