Passing multiple values in Kibana - ‘add filter’ - ‘is one of’

Hi,

I am having the same issue exposed in the topic below, but it never got a final answer nor solution (if any). In my case I have more than 400 entries and do it one by one it will take hours.

The answer for this topic does not help much either when you have 400 entries to add:

The is one of field doesn't support copy pasting values. But I have some suggestions.

  1. In the search bar, you can use:
    • Lucene syntax: <field name>:(value1 OR value2 OR value3 ...), e.g. City:(Tokyo OR Barcelona)
    • KQL: <field name>:(value1 or value2), e.g. City:(Tokyo or Barcelona)
  2. Use Add filter, then Edit as Query DSL and use:
    {
      "query": {
        "terms": {
          "field name": [ "value1", "value2", "value3" ... ]
        }
      }
    }
    

You could open a Github issue with your suggestion to enhance the usability, to ask the support of copy/paste of comma or space separated values in the is one of filter.

Thank you @Luca_Belluccini. I have been trying the solution #1 since last night. Kibana take a few seconds to process the query, but at least I can filter the data as needed. I am going to try also the solution #2 and will escalate the enhance proposal. Having this feature included in Kibana will make happy many users in need like me.

Have a good one.

@Luca_Belluccini. Just for the records. I tried solution #2 and did not work. The query editor did not show any error, but after saving the filter, Kibana shows an error (image below) and the visualization does not work at all. I am including the query and just sharing the feedback in case you want to take a look and maybe find what is failing. In the meantime I'll keep using solution #1.

PS: Using ELK 6.8.8

Thank you

{
  "query": {
    "bool": {
      "should": [
        {
          "match_phrase": {
            "alert.signature_id": ["2014797", "2015957"]
          }
        }
      ],
      "minimum_should_match": 1
    }
  }
}

Kibana filter error

You have to use the query I've provided (you're using match_phrase, while I used terms):

{
  "query": {
    "terms": {
      "alert.signature_id": ["2014797", "2015957" ]
    }
  }
}

Also, the terms aggregation requires a keyword field (if you have a field alert.signature_id.keyword, use it)

You were right. I tried exactly as you said. Here are the results:

  1. If I use "alert.signature_id" the filter will find exactly the same results that I got from solution #1 when I do the KQL search (but a lot faster!). So this works 100% good!

"alert.signature_id": ["2014797", "2015957" ]

  1. If I use "alert.signature.keyword", the filter does not show any error after saving, but did not show the expected results. So this does not works.

"alert.signature.keyword": ["2014797", "2015957"]

Again, I appreciate your time, effort and interest in helping me to resolve the issue

Thanks

If it works using alert.signature_id, it means it is a keyword field. :wink:

No problem! Glad it solved the problem.
If you're opening the enhancement request on the Kibana repo, please refer to this discuss post.
