Write and run Lucene queries, and show Elasticsearch logs alongside the rest of your content.



In order to enable Elasticsearch Provider in Fiberplane you need to either add it via direct access (for an openly accessible URL) or add it as a valid entry in the data_source.yaml configuration.

The data_sources.yaml format for adding a Elasticsearch Provider looks like this:

# data_sources.yaml
- name: elasticsearch-dev
  description: Elasticsearch (Dev)
  providerType: elasticsearch
    # Replace the following line with your Elasticsearch URL (including Basic Auth) and port
    url: http://username:password@elasticsearch:9200
    # If accessing your Elasticsearch data source requires an API key - add it here
    token: <ApiKey>


Create an Elasticsearch table

  1. Hit / and select “Elasticsearch” from the available options
  2. Write a Lucene query you want to run to pull Elasticsearch logs.
  3. Hit CTRL + ENTER or ⌘↩︎ if you’re on a Mac to run it.

Chart time range

By default, the query will follow the Notebook time range (configured at the top of the Notebook) so all of your charts in a notebook use the same time range. As you change the Notebook time range it will update all of your charts automatically.

You can also set a chart-specific time range overrides by clicking the link icon at the top of the chart.

Elasticsearch query

Expand, select, highlight, and export records

Once logs are loaded you can:

  • Expand to show them in a more readable view;
  • Select interesting records;
  • Highlight them for the rest of your team;
  • Export them into a separate table so they are archived and do not get affected by time range changes in the notebook.

Add columns

By default, the logs output shows in a full document body output. However, you can configure this to show only the fields you select. Click + Add columns and select or unselect the fields you want to see/hide. The selected fields will show as columns in a horizontal view.
