I am working on creating a real-time timeline for my company, I am using kibana for this purpose.
Process so far
- Installed kibana and elastic search
- Exported log data from AWS and stored it in json format
- uploaded the raw data to kibana using postman (POST command)
Problem: The data loaded into kibana with all default field types as string. I read the documentation on mapping and indexing but I could not get a clear understanding of what must be done. I created a mapping in the kibana console and reloaded the data to try and fix this. Although I got an error which said the mapping for this index has more than one parameter. When I tried to change the mapping for an existing index, I got the error mapping already exists for this index.
Please help me resolve the issue. If someone could list out the steps or share a tutorial video for this process that would be great! Thanks in advance!
