Bucket Script Aggregationedit

Warning

This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but experimental features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

A parent pipeline aggregation which executes a script which can perform per bucket computations on specified metrics in the parent multi-bucket aggregation. The specified metric must be numeric and the script must return a numeric value.

Syntaxedit

A bucket_script aggregation looks like this in isolation:

{
    "bucket_script": {
        "buckets_path": {
            "my_var1": "the_sum", 
            "my_var2": "the_value_count"
        },
        "script": "params.my_var1 / params.my_var2"
    }
}

Here, my_var1 is the name of the variable for this buckets path to use in the script, the_sum is the path to the metrics to use for that variable.
