Russian symbols in kibana

Hello,

I have the following question.

I have created an index in kibana, which contains a "description" field. The field contains texts in Russian. When discovering this index in kibana, Russian letters are displayed as "?" symbols.

Is there a way to fix this problem in kibana?

with kind regards,

Alexander Zhdanov

Hi Alexander,

you can probably fix this by using a Russian language text analyzer when ingesting your data. Here's a link for reference: Language analyzers | Elasticsearch Reference [7.12] | Elastic

Hi Marta,

thank you for your reply.

In our index, we have been already using "analyzer":"russian". Here is the field definition:
"description" : { "type" : "text", "fields" : { "keyword" : { "type" : "keyword", "ignore_above" : 2000 } }, "analyzer" : "russian" }
I would like to know if a customization of the analyzer works in the case?

with kind regards,

Alexander

Hi Marta,

We managed to find a work-around for the problem. Before sending data to "kibana", we translate Russian symbols to Latin.

with kind regards,
