Vertical Bar Chartsedit

This chart’s Y axis is the metrics axis. The following aggregations are available for this axis:

The count aggregation returns a raw count of the elements in the selected index pattern.
This aggregation returns the average of a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
The sum aggregation returns the total sum of a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
The min aggregation returns the minimum value of a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
The max aggregation returns the maximum value of a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
Unique Count
The cardinality aggregation returns the number of unique values in a field. Select a field from the drop-down.
Standard Deviation
The extended stats aggregation returns the standard deviation of data in a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
The percentile aggregation returns the percentile rank of values in a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down, then specify a range in the Percentiles fields. Click the X to remove a percentile field. Click + Add Percent to add a percentile field.

You can add an aggregation by clicking the + Add Aggregation button.

The buckets aggregations determine what information is being retrieved from your data set.

Before you choose a buckets aggregation, specify if you are splitting slices within a single chart or splitting into multiple charts. A multiple chart split must run before any other aggregations. When you split a chart, you can change if the splits are displayed in a row or a column by clicking the Rows | Columns selector.

The X axis of this chart is the buckets axis. You can define buckets for the X axis, for a split area on the chart, or for split charts.

This chart’s X axis supports the following aggregations. Click the linked name of each aggregation to visit the main Elasticsearch documentation for that aggregation.

Date Histogram
A date histogram is built from a numeric field and organized by date. You can specify a time frame for the intervals in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years.
A standard histogram is built from a numeric field. Specify an integer interval for this field. Select the Show empty buckets checkbox to include empty intervals in the histogram.
With a range aggregation, you can specify ranges of values for a numeric field. Click Add Range to add a set of range endpoints. Click the red (x) symbol to remove a range.
A terms aggregation enables you to specify the top or bottom n elements of a given field to display, ordered by count or a custom metric.
You can specify a set of filters for the data. You can specify a filter as a query string or in JSON format, just as in the Discover search bar. Click Add Filter to add another filter.
Significant Terms
Displays the results of the experimental significant terms aggregation.

Once you’ve specified an X axis aggregation, you can define sub-aggregations to refine the visualization. Click + Add Sub Aggregation to define a sub-aggregation, then choose Split Area or Split Chart, then select a sub-aggregation from the list of types.

When multiple aggregations are defined on a chart’s axis, you can use the up or down arrows to the right of the aggregation’s type to change the aggregation’s priority.

You can click the Advanced link to display more customization options for your metrics or bucket aggregation:

Exclude Pattern
Specify a pattern in this field to exclude from the results.
Exclude Pattern Flags
A standard set of Java flags for the exclusion pattern.
Include Pattern
Specify a pattern in this field to include in the results.
Include Pattern Flags
A standard set of Java flags for the inclusion pattern.
JSON Input
A text field where you can add specific JSON-formatted properties to merge with the aggregation definition, as in the following example:
{ "script" : "doc['grade'].value * 1.2" }

In Elasticsearch releases 1.4.3 and later, this functionality requires you to enable dynamic Groovy scripting.

The availability of these options varies depending on the aggregation you choose.

Select view options to change the following aspects of the table:

Bar Mode
When you have multiple Y-axis aggregations defined for your chart, you can use this drop-down to affect how the aggregations display on the chart:
Stacks the aggregations on top of each other.
Displays each aggregation as a proportion of the total.
Groups the results horizontally by the lowest-priority sub-aggregation.

Checkboxes are available to enable and disable the following behaviors:

Show Tooltip
Check this box to enable the display of tooltips.
Show Legend
Check this box to enable the display of a legend next to the chart.
Scale Y-Axis to Data Bounds
The default Y axis bounds are zero and the maximum value returned in the data. Check this box to change both upper and lower bounds to match the values returned in the data.
