How to open file using Kibana table visualization


(surendra) #1

I added file path to table and I would like to open file from the link. But Kibana is adding "localhost:5601" to the original file link.

Could you please let me know how to handle this case ?

Hi,

I asked our dev and this is what you can do:

You can link to any http(s) URL you want. But you cannot create 'file' links. Our field formatter doesn't allow this, since all modern browsers anyway block these links, and wouldn't allow opening file urls

Thanks,

Thank you for your response. You mean, I can open file from kibana using "http://{file path}" syntax ? Please correct me .

Yep. If you are hosting the file somewhere - you can link it and see if that works :slight_smile:

Thanks,
