Your data at your fingertips

When creating a visualization, you'll often need to decide which fields from your data to include. Lens provides Elasticsearch data fields upfront, eliminating back-and-forth guesswork. With one click, you can see a breakdown of a specific field's values and confidently select the right data to answer your questions.

Lens smart suggestions

Starting with the first preview, Lens provides smart suggestions of alternative ways to visualize your data — combining common usage patterns with relevance ranking to present an optimal visualization type. Now, instead of searching for the most impactful way to display your data, you can stay focused on what’s important: your data's story.

Experience a change of heart chart

Relationships with your data can be complicated. You need more flexibility. Lens gives you the freedom to switch between charts, change the underlying data of a chart with another data source, and even combine multiple index patterns into a single visualization. See something interesting in the preview that spurs another idea? Switch data sources with ease to keep the hunt alive and reuse results later as a dashboard panel.
