Add Field example in Logstash Date Filter should contain date-specific relevant values


(Sandeepkanabar) #1

I believe it would be more helpful if the logstash date filter documentation for add_field contains values that are pertaining to date rather than "Hello World, from %{host}".

Thoughts?

The add_field option (and several others) are present in all filters and the same help text is reused everywhere. Creating custom examples for each filter would be a lot of work with very little benefit.

Thanks @magnusbaeck. Agree.
