What I Have Learned Today - #022


Kibana dashboard example

A while ago I introduced Elastic and Kibana to our organisation as a means to aggregate and visualise data of all sorts. Following the good example of this article, a few colleagues and I made a good start with it, but then left it untouched.

Today, for one of may tasks I needed to generate a report / dashboard for a new set of tests. So I decided to dust off the Elastic/Kibana work done in the past and see if I could make a nice visualisation for the new piece of work.

For now I’m happy with the result, but I know that more improvements can be made. Some of the additions I would like are:

  • Fail labels for easier visibility
  • Pair results with log files

Elastic and Kibana has got a steep learning curve. So it’s a matter of keep using it to get better at it…
