Use kibana for clickhouse rather than elasticsearch


I'm trying to add support for clickhouse for kibana. And to do so I need to know what kind of request kibana sends to elasticsearch (especially aggregations). What parts of the source code should I look for? Can this be made into a plugin? Or do I need to automatically modify the inner code of kibana.

I've seen GitHub - ITECOMMPAY/kibouse: Clickhouse adapter for Kibana but it looks outdated. And doesn't have many aggregations.
Thank you in advance.

Hi @DrissiReda. Kibana is very tightly coupled to Elasticsearch so I think adapting Kibana to use a different database such as Clickhouse would be a very difficult task. If you must use Clickhouse, may I suggest using Grafana instead?

If you are not completely reliant on Clickhouse, perhaps you can use one of the many integrations in the Elastic Stack instead? You can sign up for a free trial of Elastic Cloud to try it out. :slight_smile:
