I am trying to work with X-Pack's Machine Learning feature. There are several resources available at the Elastic websites and beyond to learn about this tool. However, I am having trouble with making ML take in my data in the first place. I am fairly new to this, so kindly bear with me. It just gives me an error saying "Index pattern <index_pattern> is not time based". I do not understand how it is detecting whether the index is time-based or not.
For the data set that I am working with, @timestamp is not meant to be my default time-based field. I have another field called "Date", which is meant to be my time-based field. I was able to change the default for Timelion by going to Advanced Settings. However, I don't even know how to start with Machine Learning (or where to go if I want to customize parameters).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
