Can't find fields when trying to create a visualization?
First, try to refresh Kibana Mapping in the account settings menu (cogwheel in the top-right corner).
Kibana visualizations could only be based on fields that are indexed in Kibana index which is a separate index than the one your data is stored in. Whenever a new field is added, you need to manually refresh Kibana's mapping.
NOTE: The fields in the drop-down list in the visualization builder are alphabetically sorted and grouped by type. You might be looking at the textual fields list and your numeric field is just below in the numeric fields list. Type the requested field name in the drop-down to narrow the options.
Can't find fields in the "Available fields" list in the "Discover" tab?
This list only contains the fields that are in the top 500 results of your search. Therefore, your fields might be in Kibana, but wouldn't appear on the list.
In this case, try to narrow your search by using:
- A more specific query
- A narrower time setting
