Timelion & Unix Timestamp

Hi All, Firstly I am new to ELK and Kibana in general so I don't know what I don't know. I have some data where I have a unix timestamp that I would like to sue as the timefield in a timelion visual should timelion be able to sue this as the time field?

thanks in advance


Hi Andy

About using epoch time in Timelion kibana - if it is mapped as a date field it will work - regardless of
the input form - be it milliseconds epochs or an ISO formatted string.


cheers my mapping is set to below, so from your description it should all be fine for timelion

"LastChangedAt": {
"type": "date",
"format": "epoch_millis"

cheers Andy

Yes, in this case you should be able to use it for Timelion. Are you not able to use it ? Can you please provide more details- like steps , logs, screenshots etc...


thanks for the help and info, I was experiencing some issues but I think it was case sensitive AND in my query :slight_smile: all work now as expected. thanks again Andy

Glad it worked..
