Show HTML Character Entities as symbols in Kibana


I have records in ES where symbols are presented as Character Entities.
For example | as | and a record could looks like bla|bla|bla.

Is it posible in Kibana to show these entities as symbols, i.e. bla|bla|bla instead of bla|bla|bla ?

i dont think this is possible, field formatters allow you to base64 decode and url decode, but this would require a custom formatter it seems.

I think this would be better handled during indexing time and Logstash should be able to handle this for you.

@warkolm do you mean gsub in Logstash?

Yep that'd work.
