Coralogix provides you the ability to easily switch views and view your data either on Coralogix’s cutting-edge dashboard or in the good old Kibana. Use Coralogix to view our machine learning insights and for your troubleshooting while performing your day-to-day data slicing with Kibana 7.x.

In addition to providing out-of-the-box dashboards in Kibana, we’ve added hosted visualizations for metrics in Grafana and for tracing in Jaeger.

To view your data in Kibana, simply click the Kibana icon on the right side of the top menu. 

You will see the Kibana main screen, switch back to Coralogix at any time using the navigation menu:

On the left side, you can see shortcuts to:

  • Recently viewed – useful when you want to go back to the recent search/visualization/dashboard
  • Discover – search/review logs in Kibana
  • Visualize – open or create new visualization
  • Dashboard – open or create new dashboard
  • Management – review/refresh index patterns, manage saved objects, Kibana settings
