Lens improvements

Use scripted fields in your visualizations, just like any other field in the index. Rapidly reset a layer with a single click instead of removing data fields one at a time.

Nested field support

Query on nested fields using KQL. You can query for a user whose first name is Tom and whose last name is Hanks, or a user whose first name is Tom and last name is Smith. Our documentation contains examples for you to follow.
