i got a problem with the "search result highlighting".
The parameter was set to true in
And it works! But the highlighting color (#fffcb0) is similar to the background color(#ffffff). I wanted to solve this problem by editing a css file graylog.less

.result-highlight-colored { background-color: #fffcb0; }

but since i use Graylog2 the webinterface was implement as an module...
I can't find file graylog.less in my server.

I mark this as an issue, because barely seeable highlighting is not useful.


  • Graylog Version: 2.0.3
  • Elasticsearch Version: 2.3.4
  • MongoDB Version: 3.2
  • Operating System: CentOS-7-x86_64
  • Browser version: Chrome 51.0.2704.103 (64-bit)

Thank you for creating this issue!

This is a very subjective matter, but I agree it is not too visible. There should be a compromise between highlight and annoyance. And it should still be easy to read.

I have been playing a bit with it and I think #ffec3d could be a better colour for it. What do you think about it? Here is a comparison of both highlight colours:

Hi, thanks for your response

i thought about using fffb03 for highlighting, it's very similar to#ffec3d!
As long as it's more "highlighting" it would be a improvement.

Is there someway to change it by myself?

Nice, I will make the change and it will be available on 2.1.

I'm afraid that applying the change to your local environment is not that easy: you would need to checkout the code, modify the less file, and build the project.
