How to add fileds to index pattren , so it can be filterd by in discover search

i defined simple index pattern " filebeat-*"
and it has only a few fields which i can filter by:

now i like to add new fields to this index pattern. which i can see they exist

but i can't find anywhere how to add them so i could get the data that i could filter by
what I'm missing here?

As Kibana is the top of the stack, it probably makes sense to resolve all problems in the lower levels first before coming back to troubleshoot Kibana. In a lot of cases the problems aren't even caused by Kibana in the first place but the data itself is not in order in Elasticsearch.

thanks for answering, sure you are right, the problem is that it just stopped working after and uninstall it once and installed it again but this time with a custom namespace, then everything stopped to work.
this question from my first install with the "default" namespace. as we not allowed to use the "default" namespace.
and even then it didn't get me all the info . like
