Highlight query functionality in Kibana


#1

Hi there,

I was wondering if the highlight functionality of ES would be available in Kibana, so when I am doing a search I can get the highlighted text (and I don't mean the highlighting that appears on the search).

So that I do something like rawText:today and then I could add

"highlight": {
"fields": {
"rawText": {}
}
}

so that I can see where this word appears in the text and only the context surrounding it.

Thanks in advance

Can you describe exactly where in Kibana you want to see the highlighted search results? Are you on Discover page, or a visualization? Maybe a screenshot would be good.
