[beta] This functionality is in beta and is subject to change. The design and code is less mature than official GA features and is being provided as-is with no warranties. Beta features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features. Canvas allows you to create shareables, which are workpads that you download and securely share on any website. To customize the behavior of the workpad on your website, you can choose to autoplay the pages or hide the workpad toolbar.

  1. If you are using a Gold or Platinum license, enable reporting in your config/kibana.yml file.
  2. From your workpad, click the Share this workpad icon in the upper left corner, then select Share on a website.
  3. On the Share on a website pane, follow the instructions.
  4. To customize the workpad behavior to autoplay the pages or hide the toolbar, use the inline parameters.

    To make sure that your data remains secure, the data in the JSON file is not connected to Kibana. Canvas does not display elements that manipulate the data on the workpad.
