Kibana -> interactive controls

Interactive controls in Kibana are great but I have not figured out a way to pass a variable from an interactive control to a visualization widget. For example:
Let's say we have a pull down menu interactive control labeled as aggregateBy. The possible values of this pull down menu could by any cluster , partner , region ... Then we have a lens visualization that grouping by value is set by the selected pull down control value cluster , partnerId or region .

How do you do this? If we can do this, users should not create multiple visualization perspectives.....

Thanks in advanced.

Hi @lupolo, right now there is no way to pass configuration variables from a Control to a chart.

We are considering building a variables system as part of our new Controls project, but this behaviour will take a long time to be built.

You can track our progress on this project here


Thanks Devon!
