Setting up index patterns

The CHAOSSEARCH elastic data fabric tightly integrates S3 storage with the Elasticsearch API and Kibana interface.

Now that your data has been indexed, it is available to Elasticsearch and Kibana. Navigate to the Visualization tab to get started. In order to visualize and explore data in Kibana, you'll need to create an index pattern to retrieve data from Elasticsearch.

The first time you access Kibana, the Management screen is displayed. Click Index Patterns.

Create index pattern

An index pattern establishes the indices you want to visualize in Kibana.

Define index pattern

  1. Enter an index pattern that matches one or more of your CHAOSSEARCH indices
  2. Click Next step

Index pattern best practices

CHAOSSEARCH will accept an index pattern that matches multiple indices, e.g. all logs from May _logs-2018-05-??_ but will only run queries on the first index matched. The order of indices is undefined. We do not recommend wildcard index patterns.

Configure settings

  1. Select a Time Filter
  2. Click Create index pattern

Your new index pattern is now displayed, showing every field and associated data type.
