Express Your Data, Your Way

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.

Log Analysis


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

Canvas loves an audience. Present Elasticsearch data in a way that tells your company’s story, from presenting flight statistics at an airport kiosk to chatting about auth logs in a conference room. And keep your team engaged in the office with beautiful, real-time displays featuring social analytics, user engagement, operational analytics, KPIs, or any data really.


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

Superficial beauty isn't how we do things. So what gives Canvas its depth? A pipeline-based expression language that's bursting with functions and a JavaScript-agnostic plugin framework team up for boundless customization. Extending Canvas with plugins is possible for everyone — from copy/paste coders to hardcore devs.
