Maps - missing index when creating new layer

Am attempting to plot data from web logs. Data includes longitude/latitude.

When I select "Add Layer", "Documents" the only two values I get are "kibana_sample_data_logs" and "auditbeat*".

I have several dozen other kibana indexes. Did I miss a configuration step somewhere? Is this a "premium only" feature?

FWIW - my apache template has this mapping:

    "geoip" : {
      "dynamic" : true,
      "properties" : {
        "ip" : {
          "type" : "ip"
        "latitude" : {
          "type" : "half_float"
        "location" : {
          "type" : "geo_point"
        "longitude" : {
          "type" : "half_float"

Hi, I take it you are looking at adding a layer in the Maps app in this screen:

It looks like you'll need to create an index pattern for the web logs indices in Kibana > Management.

Index patterns are explained in the Kibana Management section, and you can also reference some documentation here:
