I am having trouble finding out if its possible to set the data type to “geo_point”, I have looked through all the “to_” functions and see no signs of the “geo_point” data type.
If there isnt a usable function that allows this, it there any documentation on how to modify/create new functions that would allow this?
Why do i need this?
I love Graylogs ease of use when it comes to log collections but the dashboards are just terrible. Anyone who has used Grafana or Kibana will know exactly what I mean. It is severly limiting when it comes to customizability, data representation and general looks. As a sysadmin I dont mind the logs being a bit messy but when it comes to sharing it with the dev or test teams, its not really up to standard with our other monitoring systems. Therefore I opted to hook up a external Kibana dashboard to the inbuilt elasticsearch API that graylog uses. Kibana is working great for this but it has one problem with the Map function as a specific data type in the elasticsearch index is required for it to function which Graylog does not provide by default.
