Kibana graphics do not update according to Elasticsearch data


I use Kibana and Elasticsearch 5.6.3. I saved some data in Elasticsearch, but it looks like only some part of these data is shown in Kibana graphics. This issue is not related to any filters.

For example, when I go to Kibana DevTools and run GET query, I get the following output:

  "took": 2,
  "timed_out": false,
  "_shards": {
    "total": 5,
    "successful": 5,
    "skipped": 0,
    "failed": 0
  "hits": {
    "total": 16,
    "max_score": 1,
    "hits": [

There are totally 16 entries. However, when I create a Metric, I see the number 11. If I add more entries, this number never updates in the Metric graphic.

Just to mention that both Kibana and Elasticsearch run on docker.

Hi @Liana_Napalkova,

Are you sure that Kibana time picker covers the entire date/time range for the data you have (it affects visualizations and dashboards, but not Dev Tools)?


Effectively, I have not noticed that some data entries had a timestamp of 20 years ago, while I was filtering for the last 5 years thinking that all entries should fit into this interval. Thanks.
