Kibana Sorting out Array values

Hi Team,

I am working with Elastic FunctionBeat to send logs from AWS CloudWatch Logs. I am able to create data tables, graphs etc.

The original array look like this:

Any way I can show them as it is without ordering the values?


When viewing a single document in discover does the same sorting happen?
