Build visualizations simply and intuitively

Start exploring even if you’re not sure where you’re headed. Drag and drop fields, and see immediate previews as your data takes shape. Would that look better as a bar chart? Based on your field selection, smart suggestions in Kibana Lens guide you towards visualizations that most effectively communicate your data. Spot an interesting trend that spurs another idea? No problem. Switch data sources on the fly for ad hoc analysis that makes it simple to follow your instincts and build out dashboards to continue monitoring. And it's free and open.


Get creative with Canvas in Kibana

Go beyond the grid. Infuse your brand and style into the story of your data with the logos, colors, and design elements that are unique to you. Canvas is a free and open feature of Kibana where you can get creative with your live data — and it supports SQL.

Dashboards that drive insight and action


Rapidly create dashboards that pull together charts, maps, and filters to display the full picture of your data. Build customized dashboard-to-dashboard drilldowns that enable deeper analysis. Move from insight to action by enabling users to move directly from a Kibana dashboard to any web application or URL.

Share & Collaborate

Bring everyone in on the Kibana goodness.


Easily share Kibana visualizations with your team members, your boss, their boss, your customers, compliance managers, contractors — anyone you like, really — using the sharing option that works for you. Embed a dashboard, share a link, or export to PDF, PNG, or CSV files and send as an attachment.


Control Access

Beautifully secure


Organize your dashboards and visualizations using Kibana Spaces. Use role-based access control to invite users into certain spaces (and not others), giving them access to specific content and features.

Build alerts that trigger custom actions


Keep critical changes on your radar to avoid crisis scenarios. Create alerts that use index- and metric-based thresholds to send emails, create Slack notifications, activate PagerDuty workflows, or any number of other third party integrations. Define unique alerts from within specific apps like SIEM, APM, Uptime, or Metrics and monitor them holistically in the Management tab.

Stack management for ingestion and beyond

With Kibana, the command line is no longer the only way to manage security settings, monitor the stack, ingest and roll up your data, or configure additional Elastic Stack features. While we have really excellent APIs, managing and securing the Elastic Stack from the comfort of a visual UI is more intuitive for a broader audience. View the full list of Kibana features and UIs.

Use Case Ready

Tackle logging, metrics, and more right here.

Sometimes you just want to tail a file. Perhaps you'd like to track the uptime of your website. Or maybe you want to follow a distributed trace. Do it without leaving the comfort of Kibana with built-in apps like Logs, Infrastructure, APM, Uptime, and more.
