For my index, I have created an index pattern so that my ‘payment’ field will format as $0.00. However, when I display my payment value in a Metric widget in Canvas, the format is not honored. That is, the format is ignored.
Interestingly, I loaded the kibana_sample_data_ecommerce dataset and sample canvases, and it has the same issue. It’s ‘taxable_total_price’ field has a custom format defined in the index pattern, but when I use this field in the canvas, this custom formatting is ignored or not applied.
I must be missing something. Why are the custom formats defined in the index patterns not applied when the associated field is displayed in a csnvas?
