Kibana supports arrays of objects=


(Luís Ricardo da Costa Carvalho) #1

Hi!

I would like to know if the new version of Kibana already supports arrays of objects and if it does what is the right mapping for Elasticsearch?

Thanks,
Luís Carvalho

Kibana does not support arrays of objects. We decided to pause on the support of nested objects for a bit while we consider better ways to implement the feature. Currently Kibana leverages lucene query string for searching, which doesn't supported nested or parent child. We're considering a custom parsed search language, but haven't made any decisions yet.

Open to ideas!

I forked something to support arrays of objects here - https://github.com/jimmyjones2/kibana/tree/flatten - but it's for Kibana 4.0. I did port it to 4.1 (maybe 4.2) but haven't put it on github yet. It's a fairly simple change to the flatten function, I find it useful for my use case, happy to submit it upstream if people are interested.
