How do I set Kibana to display the time using the 24 hour clock?


(Tim Ward) #1

Specifically the tooltip in the time series Visual Builder?

Do you mean you want to use 24 hour representation, eg 1700, instead of 5pm?


(Tim Ward) #3

Yes.

Once Upon A Time one would simply set this in the Windows control panel and properly behaved applications would pick it up and obey it, but with all the modern "improvements", such as browser-based applications, that seems to be too much to hope for these days :frowning_face:

There is dateFormat:scaled under the advanced settings section that would do it.


(Tim Ward) #5

Every entry in dateFormat and dateFormat:scaled uses HH. In particular dateFormat is

"MMMM Do YYYY, HH:mm:ss.SSS"

but the tooltips in the time series Visual Builder say things like

"Aug 24, 2017 9:00:00 PM"
