Add extra timestamp field for local time


(FreeBSD user) #1

Hello, I understand that Elasticsearch stores timestamp in UTC format internally, which are an hour behind my local time (UK time). I would like to add a field that shows the correct local time, am I right in thinking I need to do something with a Ruby filter as in this post:

...or is there a simpler way to do it?

Thanks.

I think the code would be something like:

filter {
    ruby {
        code => "event['local_time'] = event['@timestamp'].localtime('+01:00')"
    }
}

But I'm unsure how to get that value in a new field
