Kibana missing time-field name option


(bowow) #1

So i set up Kibana on my windows machine and I don't see the Time-field name option. is it not suppose to be there on the newest version?

FYI: I installed Elasticsearch, logstash and kibana on windows

Do you have data in ES?


(bowow) #3

How do i put data in ES?


(Mark Walkom) #4

With Logstash.

I created a config file with some data in log stash and put it in the bin folder under logstash but it still wouldn't do anything..

filename is called logstash-simple.conf

The contents of the file are
input { stdin { } }
output {
elasticsearch { hosts => ["localhost:9200"] }
stdout { codec => rubydebug }
}

You need to pipe something into stdin for it to work.
See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/first-event.html

Thanks!
I made the changes and when i run the logstash.bat file it says
"io/console not supported; tty will not be manipulated ..."

I am not sure how to resolve this.


(Mark Walkom) #8

You can ignore that
