How to make a field aggregable in Kibana


(Pradana) #1

I have a field, operator, How I can make this aggregable ? In previous version of Kibana, this quite easy, I just need to go to setting index and make this field become index.

It's most likely due to the mapping type of the index.

Can you provide the following for your index:

http://localhost:9200//_mapping

My assumption is that the field is text and should be keyword.

Hi,

Below are my mapping for the index :

It appears to be of type keyword. Are you not able to aggregate on it? Try clicking the refresh button on the index pattern under Management.

After refreshing the data, then its working.
