Elasticsearch - Filtering by Field



The discover functionality available in Kibana home page allows us to explore the data sets from various angles. You can search and filter data for the selected index patterns. The data is usually available in form of distribution of values over a period of time.

To explore the ecommerce data sample, we click on the Discover icon as shown in the picture below. This will bring up the data along with the chart.
