Pie Chart with UNIQUE COUNT and Bucket AGGREGATION with TOP HIT

(Marc) #1

We have a problem creating a Pie Chart, there’s no way to implement this aggregation in Kibana.

We want to make a Unique Count of ID and make the aggregation with the LAST HIT OF STATE (last hit considering the last TIMESTAMP). For example, we have the following LOGS:

{“ID”:”1”, “STATE”:”Start”, “TIMESTAMP”:”01/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”2”, “STATE”:” Start”, “TIMESTAMP”:”01/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”3”, “STATE”:” Start”, “TIMESTAMP”:”01/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”4”, “STATE”:” Start”, “TIMESTAMP”:”01/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”1”, “STATE”:”In progress”, “TIMESTAMP”:”03/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”2”, “STATE”:”In progress”, “TIMESTAMP”:”02/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”1”, “STATE”:”Pending”, “TIMESTAMP”:”02/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”2”, “STATE”:”Pending”, “TIMESTAMP”:”05/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”3”, “STATE”:”Pending”, “TIMESTAMP”:”02/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”1”, “STATE”:”End”, “TIMESTAMP”:”04/01/2019”}

And we want a Pie Chart that represents the following count:

Start: 1 (ID = 4)

In progress: 0

Pending: 2 (ID = 2 and ID = 3)

End: 1 (ID = 1)

We tried to create a DSL query that gives us only the lost with the last state, like this:

{“ID”:”1”, “STATE”:”End”, “TIMESTAMP”:”04/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”2”, “STATE”:” Pending”, “TIMESTAMP”:”05/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”3”, “STATE”:”Pending”, “TIMESTAMP”:”02/01/2019”}

{“ID”:”4”, “STATE”:” Start”, “TIMESTAMP”:”01/01/2019”}

But we don’t know how to save this query as SAVE SEARCH so we can create a pie chart later with this saved search.

How can we create a pie chart as described above or save a DSL as a Save search?

Hello @MarcFajula
Thanks for the request.
Unfortunately is not possible to save an aggregation like that in a saved search. You can modify only the query on saved search editing the QueryDSL of a filter.

I'm currently investigating if it's possible to create a top hit aggregation on a piechart. I will keep you posted on that


Hey @markov00,

It looks like the option exists in the drop-down for "Top Hit" but no matter what field is selected, no options appear for the "Aggregate with" field. I'm having problems with this as well trying to show last statuses for test cases. (Posted here: Visualization for Automation Test Reporting)
