When you have created and configured a Kibana mapping, you can test its connection with Elasticsearch. By testing the connection you can see which data is currently present in the Elasticsearch table. The test results are displayed in a table that pops up.

Example of test results of a Kibana mapping

To test the connection of a Kibana mapping, do as follows:

  1. In the mapping view, open the properties window of the document definition, and click the Store tab.

  2. Click to start the test.

If you test the connection before you have exported data to Elasticsearch, the test result will be an empty table. In addition, the Messages pane will show the following error message because the Elastic table cannot be found yet:
