Survey your data landscape with Discover

Move quickly from ingest to analysis with Discover’s data exploration tools. Go from bird’s-eye view for strategic data discovery – to worm’s-eye view in a few clicks to detect anomalies and troubleshoot issues. Seeing more of your documents in one place means you can easily find the information you need, AND slice and dice your data – however you please. See how insight-driven action fueled by data discovery propels you ahead of the competition. That's a winning combination.



Build visualizations simply and intuitively

Start exploring even if you’re not sure where you’re headed. Drag and drop fields, and see immediate previews as your data takes shape. Would that look better as a bar chart? Based on your field selection, smart suggestions in Kibana Lens guide you towards visualizations that most effectively communicate your data. Spot an interesting trend that spurs another idea? No problem. Switch data sources on the fly for ad hoc analysis that makes it simple to follow your instincts and build out dashboards to continue monitoring. And it's free and open.

Dashboards that drive insight and action

Rapidly create dashboards that pull together charts, maps, and filters to display the full picture of your data. Build customized dashboard-to-dashboard drilldowns that enable deeper analysis. Move from insight to action by enabling users to move directly from a Kibana dashboard to any web application or URL.


Build alerts that trigger custom actions

Keep critical changes on your radar to avoid crisis scenarios. Create alerts that use index- and metric-based thresholds to send emails, create Slack notifications, activate PagerDuty workflows, or any number of other third party integrations. Define unique alerts from within specific apps like SIEM, APM, Uptime, or Metrics and monitor them holistically in the Management tab.



Get creative with Canvas in Kibana

Go beyond the grid. Infuse your brand and style into the story of your data with the logos, colors, and design elements that are unique to you. Canvas is a free and open feature of Kibana where you can get creative with your live data — and it supports SQL.


Share & Collaborate

Bring everyone in on the Kibana goodness.

Easily share Kibana visualizations with your team members, your boss, their boss, your customers, compliance managers, contractors — anyone you like, really — using the sharing option that works for you. Embed a dashboard, share a link, or export to PDF, PNG, or CSV files and send as an attachment.


Control Access

Beautifully secure

Organize your dashboards and visualizations using Kibana Spaces. Use role-based access control to invite users into certain spaces (and not others), giving them access to specific content and features.

Wherever your visualizations take you, we’ll be there. Spin up a hosted and managed deployment via our Elasticsearch Service, get an enhanced orchestration experience with Elastic Cloud Enterprise or Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes, or simply download Kibana the good old way.
