Numbers and mappings


(Sukrit Dasgupta) #1

Hi team,

  1. How can one create mappings for numbers such that large numbers are represented as K (for 1000), M(Million) etc?

  2. How does one create custom mappings? (Such as bit rate: bps, or other ways of representation)

I have a feeling this needs to be done at ES. Any examples? Can this be done after the index is created?

Thanks in advance

  1. Can be done with field formatters - https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/managing-fields.html
  2. Maybe with the same thing, depends what you want to do really.

You could do it in ES as well, but you'd need to reindex existing data.

Perfect!! This helped a lot. Also, I used the 'docs' link in the mapping section of Kibana to understand what all can be achieved.

Thanks @warkolm
