How to do an exclude pattern on a blank value

I have graphs where some values are set to "". In other words, it is a blank string. I cannot figure out how to do an exclude pattern so that these blank values don't show up in the graphs. I can successfully exclude null, but I've tried "" and just leaving it blank and it doesn't remove the empty string value from the visualization.

Just add | to your exclude pattern. Patterns are separated with a | and thus adding one will let kibana know there is a "blank" before the separator.

Dont know if its the right way to do it ,but thats how I got around it :slight_smile:


Perfect! Thanks for that clever "workaround"!
