List of Kibana pluginsedit

src/pluginsedit

Name Description

advancedSettings

This plugin contains the advanced settings management section allowing users to configure their advanced settings, also known as uiSettings within the code.

apmOss

bfetch

bfetch allows to batch HTTP requests and streams responses back.

charts

The Charts plugin is a way to create easier integration of shared colors, themes, types and other utilities across all Kibana charts and visualizations.

console

Console provides the user with tools for storing and executing requests against Elasticsearch.

Dashboard plugin

- Registers the dashboard application. - Adds a dashboard embeddable that can be used in other applications.

data

The data plugin provides common data access services, such as search and query, for solutions and application developers.

devTools

The ui/registry/dev_tools is removed in favor of the devTools plugin which exposes a register method in the setup contract. Registering app works mostly the same as registering apps in core.application.register. Routing will be handled by the id of the dev tool - your dev tool will be mounted when the URL matches /app/dev_tools#/<YOUR ID>. This API doesn’t support angular, for registering angular dev tools, bootstrap a local module on mount into the given HTML element.

discover

Contains the Discover application and the saved search embeddable.

Embeddables plugin

Embeddables are re-usable widgets that can be rendered in any environment or plugin. Developers can embed them directly in their plugin. End users can dynamically add them to any embeddable containers.

esUiShared

This plugin contains reusable code in the form of self-contained modules (or libraries). Each of these modules exports a set of functionality relevant to the domain of the module.

expressions plugin

Expression pipeline is a chain of functions that pipe its output to the input of the next function. Functions can be configured using arguments provided by the user. The final output of the expression pipeline can be rendered using one of the renderers registered in expressions plugin.

All the arguments to expression functions need to be serializable, as well as input and output. Expression functions should try to stay pure. This makes functions easy to reuse and also make it possible to serialize the whole chain as well as output at every step of execution.

Expressions power visualizations in Dashboard and Lens, as well as, every element in Canvas is backed by an expression.

This plugin provides methods which will parse & execute an expression pipeline string for you, as well as a series of registries for advanced users who might want to incorporate their own functions, types, and renderers into the service for use in their own application.

home

Moves the legacy ui/registry/feature_catalogue module for registering "features" that should be shown in the home page’s feature catalogue to a service within a "home" plugin. The feature catalogue refered to here should not be confused with the "feature" plugin for registering features used to derive UI capabilities for feature controls.

indexPatternManagement

WARNING: Missing README.

Contains the input control visualization allowing to place custom filter controls on a dashboard.

inspector

- creating custom functionality (actions) - creating custom user interaction events (triggers) - attaching and detaching actions to triggers. - emitting trigger events - executing actions attached to a given trigger. - exposing a context menu for the user to choose the appropriate action when there are multiple actions attached to a single trigger.

urlForwarding

This plugins contains helpers to redirect legacy URLs. It can be used to forward old URLs to their new counterparts.

usageCollection

Usage Collection allows collecting usage data for other services to consume (telemetry and monitoring). To integrate with the telemetry services for usage collection of your feature, there are 2 steps:

visDefaultEditor

The default editor is used in most primary visualizations, e.x. Area, Data table, Pie, etc. It acts as a container for a particular visualization and options tabs. Contains the default "Data" tab in public/components/sidebar/data_tab.tsx. The plugin exposes the static DefaultEditorController class to consume.

visTypeVislib

Contains the vislib visualizations. These are the classical area/line/bar, pie, gauge/goal and heatmap charts.

visTypeXy

Contains the new xy-axis chart using the elastic-charts library, which will eventually replace the vislib xy-axis charts including bar, area, and line.

visualizations
