Kibana Lens is an easy-to-use, intuitive UI that simplifies the process of data visualization through a drag-and-drop experience. Whether you're exploring billions of logs or spotting trends from your website traffic, Lens gets you from data to insights in just a few clicks — no prior experience in Kibana required.
Pie charts, donut charts, and treemap visualizations are here! Check out Kibana Lens in the 7.8 release to play with these and other new features.
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.
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.
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.
