Kibana crashing when positive and negative filters applied together


I am trialling Kibana 5.4.0 with some business stakeholders and it seems to crash repeatedly whenever an inverted filter and a positive filter are applied together.

The error message displayed is:

 Fatal Error
[$rootScope:infdig] 10 $digest() iterations reached. Aborting!
Watchers fired in the last 5 iterations: []$rootScope/infdig?p0=10&p1=[] (http://IP:Port/bundles/commons.bundle.js?v=15063:39)

Version: 5.4.0
Build: 15063

Is this a limitation of Kibana or is it a bug? Will be a major concern if we can't get past this. Appreciate any pointer.


This definitely looks like a bug. Sorry about that! We'd like to fix this ASAP. Would you mind filing an issue on our GitHub repo so we can track it? We'll also need to know the steps you took to create this error, so that we can reproduce it. Thanks for reporting this!


Thanks CJ for the prompt response, will look forward to the fix.

The steps are very simple:

I had 2 filter buttons in a vertical bar chart visualization which is split by series and by chart.

One filter button was an inverted filter to 'exclude' a value.
Other filter was to filter for a specific product. if I click on 'enable'/disable' checkbox for any of these then the crash page appears.



Any news/update on this?
