Filter (?) in Kibana

Hi all,

I'm a new user of Kibana and i'd like to know if it's possible to make a "link" between two documents.

For example, if i have one doc whose represent the ask to a server and another doc whose represent the answer.
Is there a way to count the ask without answer with the help of filter ? Or must i join the two docs in ElasticSearch ??


You may want to checkout this documentation. Its a good read on how to deal with relational data in Elasticsearch.

Thx for the answer.
so i must do the work with ElasticSearch ?
Can't do it using Kibana ?

If you simply want to count documents that are of type ask and not type answer, then you'd need to index the _type field and filter on that. That would answer your last question, but if you are looking to link documents, its best to do that in Elasticsearch beforehand.

Ok thx for your answer
