Input field - comments on documents

(Markus Thaeter) #1

Dear es Team and Community,

is there a possibility to add an input field to a visualization or a dashboard? I want some comment field, where the input is appended to the document as text (and loaded during dashboard start).

Kind regards,

You could use a Markdown visualization to insert text in the Dashboard like in the image.

Don't know if it's what you want.

Kind regards,

Hi Christiano,

I'm not shure. With Markdown you can (afaik) only display and manipulate text (font, size, etc.).
What I would need is an input field (some kind of ,,send to document'' function) which enables me to save a text into a defined field of my document.


That would mean Kibana would have to re-index document, but Kibana isn't supposed to modify data (except for its own "saved objects" in .kibana-* index).

3rd-party plugins can probably do that, but there is no built-in functionality like this.

That's a pitty.
Has anyone seen a plugin, which can index/upsert Documents?
