Leading zeros on number field formatting


I am trying to format a numeric field in kibana to show leading zeros.
The goal is to receive a fixed length on the field.

I configured a formatter on the field in the index management and followed the examples on numeral.js to receive a fixed length of five with the following format string: '00000'.

The numeric field still shows up trimmed. Is there something I am missing?

Nope there's nothing you're missing. Unfortunately Kibana's running off an forked implementation prior to that feature being introduced. I opened https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/18625 to see if we can get it implemented.

Thanks Jon.
As I assume not the highest priority gets pinned on this task, maybe an update to the help text on format fields can save future users some frustration?
