You can view the number of documents outputted by your pipeline with the count results button.

When you delete or add a document, you must manually refresh the count results value on the Aggregations tab to reflect the new document count.

To count result documents, you must first create and run your aggregation pipeline. You can't count result documents while editing your pipeline.


After you run your pipeline, click count results, which appears under the Run button. The count results button will update with the count of resulting documents.

Click the count results link
