Add dataedit

Kibana provides step-by-step instructions to help you add data. The Security Guide is a good source for more detailed information and instructions.


Auditbeat, Filebeat, Winlogbeat, and Packetbeat send security events and other data to Elasticsearch.

The default index patterns for Elastic Security events are auditbeat-*, winlogbeat-*, filebeat-*, packetbeat-*, endgame-*, logs-*, and apm-*-transaction*. To change the default pattern patterns, go to Stack Management > Advanced Settings > securitySolution:defaultIndex.

Elastic Security endpoint agentedit

The agent detects and protects against malware, and ships host and network events directly to Elastic Security.

Elastic Common Schema (ECS) for normalizing dataedit

The Elastic Common Schema (ECS) defines a common set of fields to be used for storing event data in Elasticsearch. ECS helps users normalize their event data to better analyze, visualize, and correlate the data represented in their events.

Elastic Security can ingest and normalize events from ECS-compatible data sources.
