I'm exploring another approach to meeting my requirements, and am currently looking at
iframe embeds of my kibana visualisations.
My specific use case is when a user clicks on a graph item (e.g. bars in a histogram or bar chart), a form/widget appears that the user can then do something with. Essentially, the user needs to perform a follow-up action based on the graphs that they are seeing.
What I'm hoping for, is a way to modify the
onclick event. Being able to do that, means that I can use a
postMessage() function to send the target (and corresponding information) of the
click event to the parent page that has the embedded iframe.
I know I've seen older requests for such a piece of functionality. I haven't been able to find any recent comments stating that this has now been built, or that it has been scheduled for a later release or something...
Is there a view on whether the kibana team will consider this piece of functionality?
And any advice/warnings about how to accomplish this in my own kibana codebase?
