Live feed

The live feed on the Overview dashboard helps you quickly access recently created cases, favorited Timelines, and the latest Elastic Security news.


The Security news section provides the latest Elastic Security news to help you stay informed of new developments, learn about Elastic Security features, and more.


Time-based histograms show the number of detections, alerts, and events that have occurred within the selected time range. To focus on a particular time, click and drag to select a time range, or choose a preset value. The Stack by menu lets you select which field is used to organize the data. For example, in the Alert trend histogram, stack by kibana.alert.rule.name to display alert counts by rule name within the specified time frame.
