Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 22.214.171.124.0 and later Information in this document applies to any platform.
We can use Elasticsearch to search documents stored in Oracle WebCenter Content (WCC). (Elasticsearch support is available since WCC 126.96.36.199 + Bundle Patch 188.8.131.52.200714) This document introduces some useful features in Kibana to diagnose the Elasticsearch environment.
Note: Kibana and Elasticsearch are not an Oracle Product, they are open source softwares. This document is provided for educational purposes only and the Kibana product is not specifically supported by Oracle Support Services. It has been tested internally, however, and works as documented. We do not guarantee that it will work as described, in your environment. Be sure to test it in your environment before relying on it in a Production setting.
Kibana is an open source data visualization dashboard for Elasticsearch. It provides visualization capabilities on top of the content indexed on an Elasticsearch cluster. It can be used for searching, viewing, and visualizing data indexed in Elasticsearch and analyzing the data through the creation of bar charts, pie charts, tables, histograms, and maps. A dashboard view combines these visual elements to then be shared via browser to provide real-time analytical views into large data volumes in support of use cases such as:
Logging and log analytics
Infrastructure metrics and container monitoring
Application performance monitoring (APM)
Geospatial data analysis and visualization
Monitoring, managing, and securing an Elastic Stack instance via web interface.
