A Kibana interface consists of four main tabs:
- Discover: The Discover page enables free text searches, field-based searches, range-based searches, and so on.
- Visualize: The Visualize page enables building many visualizations, such as pie charts, bar charts, line charts, and so on, which can be saved and used in dashboards later.
- Dashboard: The Dashboard represents collections of multiple visualizations and searches, which can be used to easily apply filters based on click interaction, and draw conclusions based on multiple data aggregations.
- Settings: Settings enables the configuration of index patterns, scripted fields, the data types of fields, and so on.
Let's take a look at the Discover page in more detail.
