Sorry if this is not the right place to submit what appears to be tickets. I’ve done so in GitHub, but not really sure it’s there, or here, since it’s specific to ES. We are evaluating Grafana. We need to create some standard terms aggretation graphs, with ES as the data source… but can’t do so. Date histogram and table works just fine. I already reviewed other posts in this group, with no luck to resolve our problem.
What Grafana version are you using? 4.5.1
What datasource are you using? ElasticSearch 5.x
What OS are you running grafana on? Linux (Ubuntu)
What did you do?
I created a date histogram from some ES index. Data come up just fine.
But when I try to do a terms aggregation by one field, I’m getting no results, and a message about defining a field name for the X-axis.
If I go to the Axes tab I can see the “Series” option, but selecting that one do nothing (dropdown remains blank).
I already checked the query using a table view, and that works fine. Also used the Dev tools in Chrome, and the response from ES was perfect:
I was surprized to see in #7470 that “Only time series is supported by graph panel still, you need the date histogram.”. Is that true? Should we forget about doing bar charts with ES as the data source? That would be a definitive show stopper, as 99% of our charts would be terms aggregations.
Thanks a lot!
