Kibana 5.2.1 visualisation unexpectedly blank


I'm experiencing a problem with visualising data in Kibana 5.2.1/Elasticsearch 5.2.1. The discover pane displays the data and count but when I try to plot this on a graph, it's blank. There's nothing seemingly interesting in the logs and no error messages.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Index mappings:

PUT happiness
"mappings": {
"rating": {
"properties": {
"teamID": {
"type": "text"
"happinessRating": {
"type": "integer"
"ratingDate": {
"type": "date"

I think this may be a bug in Timelion. I've recreated the visualisation based on the standard search and it does work. For the same aggregation Timelion is still blank - no results returned.

hi @awconstable,

I'm trying to reproduce this, with no luck.

Does this also occur when you use Timelion from the main timelion application (iso. from the "Timeseries" visualization)?

Yes, only using timelion or a time series graph. If I create a standard line chart and add time series data to an axis. Then it works.
