Is there any way to CSV export the results on Discover tab in Kibana 4 Beta 2?

Edit 6 Sep 2018: CSV reporting is available for free in X-Pack starting in version 6.0.0. Starting with 6.3.0, CSV reporting is available in the default distribution of Kibana. For 5.3-5.6, @fbaligand maintains a community plugin and comments on this issue when it is updated.

Currently there is no way to export doc results as CSV, this is something we want to implement on the backend so we can return more results than would be reasonable in javascript.

Then what is the meaning of the Export-Button when in the Discover-Panel? There is a button, that is not doing anything atm.
Or am I misinterpreting its meaning?

+1. In order for our support team to be able to use Kibana fully, we need the ability to export a subset of documents (the search results) to CSV.

Now that the server is nodeJS based it should be fairly simple to add a route with a size parameter that loads a savedSearch object and exports its results to CSV

@fbaligand The patch seems to have issues exporting nested fields.

For example, my data which when exported should look like this -

field1,field2
"[key value],[key value],[key value]","value1"
"[key value],[key value],[key value]","value2" 

looks like this instead:

field1,field2
"[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]","value1"
"[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]","value2" 

Any idea about why this happens or how can it be fixed?

The export feature from xpack 6 is great. I'm stuck with ES5.6 for now until the folks at mongo-connector include support for ES6 so I'm still dependent on the patch.

@fbaligand - I'm on Kibana version 5.6.8, will the csv-export v5.6.4 work on this version of Kibana?

@shoaibjdev normally yes.
But it could override some changes provided by kibana 5.6.5+ in discover part.
I will try to release the patch for kibana 5.6.8 today.

Hello!
I have kibana 5.6.8 and I tried to install patch from here
https://github.com/fbaligand/kibana/releases/download/v5.6.8-csv-export/csv-export-patch.tar.gz
I unpack files to /usr/share/kibana/src/ui/public/doc_table/, restarted kibana after that, but nothing happends in my kibana web page :(
What more should I do to get the csv export?

Hi, @fbaligand
I have seen this post, of cource. I have linux debian jessie with last updates, kibana has been installed from debian repo. In my /etc/passwd:
kibana110:115::/home/kibana:/bin/false
but there is no folder /home/kibana
When I write echo ${KIBANA_HOME} it returns nothing. That's why I unpacked the patch to folder /usr/share/kibana/
Now systemctl status kibana.service returns:
...
Main PID: 29317 (node)
CGroup: /system.slice/kibana.service
└─29317 /usr/share/kibana/bin/../node/bin/node --no-warnings /usr/share/kibana/bin/../src/cli -c /etc/kibana/kibana.yml

May you advice something for my case? Thank you.

@visaversa
Indeed, you have to unpack the patch onto kibana install folder. In your case : /usr/share/kibana
Once you did it, you have to delete folder /usr/share/kibana/optimize.
Be assured all kibana core and patch files are owned by the same linux user.
And then restart kibana service.

@fbaligand After deleting optimize folder and restart everything is ok, export is available.

Hi,
I want users who have read-only access to Kibana be able to export the Discover results to CSV.
Currently it mandates the user to save the query, which a read-only access user won't be able to do.
What is the reason to necessitate the saving of the query? Can't it be done on the fly? How can read-only users export the search results?
Thank You.

If you install kibana from yum,be careful with the "optimize" folder's ownership

systemctl stop kibana
cd ${KIBANA_HOME}
wget https://github.com/fbaligand/kibana/releases/download/v5.6.10-csv-export/csv-export-patch.tar.gz
tar -zxvf csv-export-patch.tar.gz
rm -f csv-export-patch.tar.gz
rm -rf optimize/*
systemctl start kibana

@epixa Could you edit the original question at the top of this stack of 500 comments with the current status of the resolution of this issue, a summary of where we're at? I've read through the 500 comments (it took quite a while) and I've pulled out three themes. If any of these seem like the current status, please edit the original question at the top and add them so nobody else has to read 500 comments.

I complete a little bit :

  • csv export is part of x-pack basic, so it is free to use
  • since kibana 6.3, x-pack is included in kibana package, so no need to add a plugin
  • I maintain a csv export patch for kibana 5.x

It is included in default distribution (that contains xpack), but not in oss distribution.
That said, it is free to use, because included in Basic license.

Is there a way anyone aware to get the csv export feature in an AWS ES distribution? I am able to setup a Kibana instance and connect to AWS ES. I can install plugins on this Kibana. But i was not able to find a plugin which does this job for me.

@zhtaoit
the size is customizable in Kibana advanced settings.
The setting is: discover:sampleSize
