Kibana Visualize - Field not showing

Hi everyone,

I'm still new at this so please forgive me. I am attempting to visualize some data in Kibana by using:
Data Table > Split Row > Aggregation > Terms.

The problem here is I am unable to locate "event_data.CommandLine" from the "Field" drop down

I can confirm that "event_data.CommandLine" does exist as I am able to show logs picking this field up:

I've also gone into the Management > Index Patterns.....showing this field exists.

Can anyone help me out in getting this field displayed in the Visualize menu?

Thanks everyone!

Hi Jim,

I encountered the same issue, not sure if the approach is right, but I mapped the fields to keywords, or use the raw multifield mapping,

PUT my_index
  "mappings": {
    "my_type": {
      "properties": {
        "city": {
          "type": "text",
          "fields": {
            "raw_city": { 
              "type":  "keyword"

and it worked for me.

Hope this helps you too


Thanks J, will give it a go!
