Limiting the time range filter

Issue: I have set up a visual with data histogram on the x-axis. From time to time, it returns an error saying too many buckets.

Possible solutions:

  1. Limit the time range filter to say the last week? month? year? in a dashboard?
  2. Remove the ability of the user to change the time range

data histogram on the x-axis

You mean date histogram?

Is the field you are using for the histogram configured as default time field in your index pattern? By doing this and using the "auto" setting for the interval, Kibana should take care of that and adjust the interval depending on the time range.
