Add log level as column
Look for a line that has the level "ERROR" and click on the ">" icon to expand the view.
Then on the "stack_trace" field click again on ">" to expand the field.
This will give you access to the application logs.
Query Editor errors
When running queries in the query editor, if Conduit encounters an error, it will provide a path for an admin user to further investigate the cause of the error. By clicking on "[Admins Only] Log details", the user will be redirected to the Kibana page with a filter already set for the correlation id displayed and a time filter for the previous 60 minutes.
If there no logs displayed, please expand the time interval filter.
Configure Kibana Log index (advanced)
Click on the Kibana Menu and scroll down to Management.
Click on "Stack management".

Click on "Create index pattern".
Fill in index pattern name with "logstash*".
You will see the found index below.
Click on "Next step".
Set Time field to "@timestamp" and click on "Create index pattern".
Once the new index is configured you will see it under the section Kibana -> "Index patterns".
