Please help a complete newbie!
I have an existing elasticsearch index (that's automatically generated from a plugin that populates the index from a database) and I'm trying to visualize some fields geographically (using Kibana's coordinate map). The index has no geolocation data per se. It has a field called "alloc_node" and I know that there are only handful of "alloc_node"s present in the dataset, and I have their geographical coordinates.
Data from the index looks like this (from Kibana's discover tab, truncated):
t _id MV0JkWYBmQ9JhdzgNzwI t _index slurm # _score - t _type jobcomp t alloc_node mace
e.g. I know that "mace" is located in NYC, lat = 40.73, lon = -73.94. I only have 5 such records where I have to map the node to geo.
Do I have to update the index to visualize this, or can the extra fields be added via a query? How? What would be most efficient? The index is not large for now (but in production could be).
I tried reading the docs, but I'm confused with types being deprecated in ES 6.x+, and the silly things I tried did not work. I feel like this should be such an easy thing to answer for someone with more experience. Any help would be much appreciated.
