Filtering and Searching Basics

Important to Remember:

Whenever you Filter your data or perform a Search:

  • Histogram
  • Documents Table
  • Available Fields list

...are updated to reflect the search results


  • Number of hits changes whenever a filter or search is performed.
  • The Documents table always shows the first 500 records.
  • By default, logs are listed in reverse chronological order. The newest documents are shown first.



  • We'll cover how you can view beyond the 500-record count for Available Fields next

  • You can currently only export up to 500 lines from Kibana
    • We recommend refining your query if you can
    • Another option is to use the Scroll API to export up to 10,000 lines or more. You'll need an Enterprise plan to get API access.
