I am writing log-like data directly into elasticsearch, bypassing some of the conventional logging infrastructure, logstash included. This log-like data is being written entirely semantically as json, not as human readable text messages to be parsed, especially so for visualization and analytics sake.
How should I structure my json data messages such that they are available to Kibana and to the Kibana end-user, as equally as conventional log data ingested by logstash??
are there some official configuration knobs determining which data Kibana makes available from elastic?
Not sure I could locate such ones in https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/kibana-server-properties.html
