ES and Kibana versions 7.7.0
In this example I have three docs that are loaded into ElasticSearch.
The mapping has a timestamp
However one doc does not have a timestamp field
CASE 1 : Index Pattern with TimeFilter field name
In this case Kibana Web Console (Discover) shows zero records
"No results match your search criteria
Expand your time range
One or more of the indices you’re looking at contains a date field. Your query may not match anything in the current time range, or there may not be any data at all in the currently selected time range. You can try changing the time range to one which contains data."
**CASE 2 : Index Pattern with NO TimeFilter field **
Kibana displays all records. The GOTCHA is now we cannot select a time-range
If you define a TimeFilter field in an Index-Pattern , does every record necessarily need to have ts field in the doc in order to display all the docs on the Discover Web Console?
Thanks for your help
