Date Histogram Aggregation Usageedit

A multi-bucket aggregation similar to the histogram except it can only be applied on date values. From a functionality perspective, this histogram supports the same features as the normal histogram. The main difference is that the interval can be specified by date/time expressions.

Note

When specifying a format and extended_bounds or missing, in order for Elasticsearch to be able to parse the serialized DateTime of extended_bounds or missing correctly, the date_optional_time format is included as part of the format value.

Be sure to read the Elasticsearch documentation on Date Histogram Aggregation.
