Kibana geolocation and graylog


(Marsel Chaco) #1

Hi,

I just installed Kibana Version 4.5.0 so i'm really new with it. I have a graylog environment running elasticsearch 2.3.1. I'm trying to use geographic maps It looks like Kibana is looking for geo_point where graylog uses _geolocation. Is there a way to have Kibana use that field for mapping?

Thank you,

"geo_point" is the ES datatype that must be configured on a field in order for it to be used by things like Kibana. The field name itself shouldn't matter so long as you used "geo_point" as the mapping in ES for that field.

The docs for the geo_point data type are: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/2.3/geo-point.html
