6.5.1 central management: monitoring doesn't work any more + specifying non-module settings


#1

Just setup my first filebeat with central management, this is great stuff.

Problem is, monitoring doesn't work anymore and there is no way to configure it.

I tried creating a dummy configuration block specifying 'xpack.monitoring.enabled:true' in 'Other Config' but it doesn't work.

Are there plans to add anymore configuration blocks that would allow these things to be configured? or should monitoring at least work out the box?

thanks

Answered my own question, you can edit filebeat.yml on each host.

Just say your reply, we are not planning in the short term to expose all settings from the filebeat.yml to the central management feature.

But I see the usefulness and I will open an issue to track it as an enhancement.
