Graph shows no data and i don't know how to do a good request

(Antoine Charron) #1


I wanted to try out x-pack graph. So I created an index, and filled it with data.
I can do bar like that :

But my problem is that I can't do a simple graph :disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved:

I used these settings

but I haven't results :cry:
Settings are like that :
{ "query": {
"query_string": {
"query": "Angular"
"controls": {
"use_significance": true,
"sample_size": 2000,
"timeout": 5000
"connections": {
"vertices": [
"field": "competence",
"size": 5,
"min_doc_count": 3
"vertices": [
"field": "competence",
"size": 5,
"min_doc_count": 3

"took": 0,
"timed_out": false,
"failures": ,
"vertices": ,

Thanks to read

Looks like your data size might be small judging from the output of Discover. Try setting certainty from its default value of 3 to 1. Open the settings menu by clicking settings in the upper right corner of graph

Thanks Nathan !
But nothing appear when I click on "advanced Solutions"

Do you have an idea?

This URL is OK ? Or Graph didn't ask on elastick server

(Nathan Reese) #5

What version of Kibana are you using? What browser? How did you get the settings menu to open?

That URL should be fine. The elasticsearch url is configured in kibana.yml.

browser : Google Chrome

To open the settings menu, I have click on Graph / Select index (indexuser) / add competence.keyword then I have had * then I clicked on search

Nothing appear then I click on advanced settings (like on screenshot)

Did setting Certainty resolve the problem?

I cant access to your settings menu (look the first screenshot, nothing appear) :frowning:
Nothing appear when I click on "advanced settings". In these conditions, I can't change Certainty settings

Other idea :
Maybe I have an idea: Kibana is it well install ?

(Nathan Reese) #9

Are there any errors in the Chrome dev tools console when the empty advanced settings tab is displayed?
