Advanced queriesedit

When querying, you’re simply searching and selecting data from fields in Elasticsearch documents. It may be helpful to view some of your documents in Discover to better understand how APM data is stored in Elasticsearch.

Queries entered into the query bar are also added as parameters to the URL, so it’s easy to share a specific query or view with others.

In the screenshot below, you can begin to see some of the transaction fields available for filtering on:

Example of the Kibana Query bar in APM app in Kibana

Example queriesedit

  • Exclude response times slower than 2000 ms: transaction.duration.us > 2000000
  • Filter by response status code: context.response.status_code >= 400
  • Filter by single user ID: context.user.id : 12
  • View all transactions for an endpoint, instead of just a sample - processor.event: "transaction" AND transaction.name: "<TRANSACTION_NAME_HERE>"
