Kibana 101: Getting Started with Visualizations

Kibana enables visual exploration and real time analysis of your data in Elasticsearch. In this video, we use a demo to show how to create a dashboard from scratch in Kibana. This video is perfect for users that are new to Kibana and are looking for a primer on data exploration, visualization, and dashboarding in Kibana.

The demo will focus on 3 main features:

  • Discover tab
      • Build intuition about data and understand its underlying structure
      • Start to explore the questions that can be asked of the data
  • Visualize  tab
      • Build graphs to dive into specific questions and test hypothesis
  • Dashboard tab
      • Compile dashboards to see and share your data story
      • Monitor the trends and events in real time

If you would like access to the example data from the demo, check it out here

You can also try a free trial of Elastic Cloud, which comes with a free Kibana instance.
