Showcase your data, live & pixel‑perfect
You've arrived at your creative space for live Elasticsearch data. Play with color palettes, add your own CSS elements, drag and drop assets — and turn your presentations and reports into dynamic, infographic-style works of art.
Express your data, your way
Turn your data into one-of-a-kind, dynamic dashboards featuring the logos, colors, and design elements that define your brand. Whether you're working with infrastructure logs, security events, application metrics, or data from your hobby Arduino project, Elastic Canvas gives you creative control. From simple to stylized, two-toned to technicolor, watch your data take shape in a way that moves you.
Bonus: Canvas features ship for free in Kibana.
From the usual to the unexpected
Life doesn't follow a template. Canvas is flexible so you can break from the rigidity of a grid and bring to life the delightful things that matter. Think yellow submarines, purple rain, blackbirds — or whatever speaks to you. Everything is a data point.
Big ideas on the big screen
Present Elasticsearch data in a way that tells your company's story — whether it's presenting flight statistics at an airport kiosk or reviewing auth logs in a conference room. Keep your team engaged with beautiful, real-time displays featuring social analytics, user engagement, operational analytics, KPIs, or any data really. Plus, take your visualizations outside of Kibana — Canvas shareables enable you to embed static workpads directly into HTML sites.
Brand, automate, celebrate
Are the generic charts in your weekly emails starting to blur together? Create branded reports with custom elements that your team will look forward to opening. Build your reports once and watch them automatically ship with the latest weekly, monthly, or annual data. Goodbye copy-paste.
Canvas has full support for Elasticsearch SQL query syntax so you can enjoy the rush of typing SELECT and watching the magic happen. Use Elasticsearch SQL to build aggregations and shape your data within Canvas — then use that familiar syntax for metrics, time series visualizations, infographics, and beyond.
More than a pretty face
Already have visuals built in Kibana Lens or Elastic Maps? No problem. Add them directly to a Canvas workpad in three easy clicks.
