Link Field in Kibana?

(Clannadqs) #1

Hey guys,
A few months ago I worked on something using the ELK stack. I never got extremely close to what was happening on Kibana, but I specifically remember there being a link field for Kibana visualisations. We were using the ID of each visualization as the "link" to where to go if the visualization was clicked on. I know they were using a few plugins such as num-health-metric and health-metric, but other than that I am not sure. Does this ring any bells? I can't find anything on it and it would be beneficial for me to find it.

Not sure I follow, can you explain what the feature did a little more? Was it just turning field values into links in the UI? If so that sounds like field formatters.

Like I said, I didn't really deal with Kibana too much in the past so sorry for being vague with my question. From what I remember it was in the JSON of the visualization. So if an ID of one of my dashboards is Dashboard-1-Test, then in the link field for the visualization if you put "Dashbaord-1-Test" as the value it would redirect to that specific ID.

Hmmm sorry, it doesn't ring a bell for me. You can link Visualizations to saved searches, but I'm not aware of any feature that linked visualizations to dashboards. It could be that there was a community plugin I'm unaware of.

Luckily I found one of our vis templates. That seems to be a plugin, doesn't it? I believe this was with 5.1

Yeah, that looks like something custom to me.
