Hacks in Kibana 7.5.1

Can I modify the visData object that a visualization renders using hacks ? How do hacks work? What kind of data objects does a hack handle?

"hacks" are simply JavaScript modules that get loaded on every page in Kibana. Other than that, there is nothing particularly special about them. They're primarily useful when you want to make sure some logic gets run on pages that don't even know about your plugin.

What exactly are you trying to modify?

@joshdover Hi, I am trying to modify the visData Object for every visualisation type. To do so, Can I use hacks or do I have to write custom request and response handlers for every visualisation type ?
