Intro to Canvas: A new way to tell visual stories in Kibana


Rashid Khan

Creator of Kibana



Introducing Canvas, a new data visualization and presentation layer that sits within Kibana. Backed by Elasticsearch, Canvas lets you create dynamic, pixel-perfect, infographic-style presentations of your live Elasticsearch data. Showcase the story of your data, your way.

If you want to customize your visualizations beyond Kibana dashboards, Canvas is the tool for you. Play with color palettes, add your own CSS elements, drag and drop assets — and turn your presentations and reports into dynamic works of art.
