@ruflin this would be mostly ready, my main doubt is what to do with dashboards, not sure if I should rename fields there.
@jsoriano Yes, aggregations support aliases, and all visualizations are built on that. The only part that aliases don't help us with, in the Kibana Objects, is the saved searches. The saved search columns are _source field names. Aliases don't apply to _source at all.
What we currently have is that if someone upgrades from 6.x to 7.x, he keeps his old dashboards from 6.x and enables the migration layer. As we have added all alias for the apache2 fields, things should keep working as is.
For dashboards etc. I'm in the progress of writing a migration scripts based on the ecs-migration.yml file. I just realised now that this is missing in this PR and should be added to make sure we rename the fields correctly. Potentially it just needs update to point to the "apache" instead of "apache2" fields.
