Is it possible to add the 'Fields' sidebar in a Kibana dashboard?


(Nikhil Owalekar) #1

The 'Fields' sidebar that is provided in the Discover section is very powerful. But the Discover section lacks visualizing capabilities. So, with a bunch of visualizations and a saved search I created a dashboard. But I miss the functionality of the 'Fields' sidebar, that lets you explore all the available fields.

Is it possible to add/have this side bar in a Kibana dashboard?

(If the sidebar is called something else, here is an image for reference)

Sidebar is what we call it too :wink:

No, there isn't a way to do this on the Dashboard. But I'm curious, what would you even do with it if such a thing did exist? Why do you find it useful to know what fields exist in the Dashboard?

The sidebar doesn't just show the fields. It also shows percentage distribution of the values of each field (from top 500 records)
I have a (sort of all-in-one) dashboard which has a bunch of visualizations to help see trends. I feel the only thing that's makes me go back to discover mode, is the sidebar.
