See KNQL Plugin for official documentation, installation instructions etc.

Open any issues here that you might have with the plugin, as well as requests for new versions.


See the kibana contributing guide for instructions setting up your development environment. Once you have completed that, use the following npm tasks.

  • npm install jison-gho -g

    Install the jison parser tooling

  • npm install

    Install required dependencies

  • npm start

    Start kibana and have it include this plugin

  • npm start -- --config kibana.yml

    You can pass any argument that you would normally send to bin/kibana by putting them after -- when running npm start

  • npm run build

    Build a distributable archive

  • npm run test:browser

    Run the browser tests in a real web browser

  • npm run test:server

    Run the server tests using mocha

For more information about any of these commands run npm run ${task} -- --help.

Grammer changes

Changes to the grammer must be made in the knql.jison file. Once those changes are made the knql.js file must be rebuilt using the command:

jison knql.jison -p slr

You can’t perform that action at this time.
