HI Mark,

Thank you for the reply.please suggest me me how can we design graphs for multiple types in one index in kibana latest version.


(Mark Walkom) #4

Just treat the type as any other field.

If you have more specific questions, problems or examples please state them.

hi @warkolm,

can you please suggest is aliases possible for indices with different schema? like some kind of merging the fields in one index schema with another index schema.


(Mark Walkom) #6

No you cannot do that.

hi @warkolm

we have designed a common schema to hold entire data from all the servers instead of multiple types in one index we have managed at document level.
