Automated log stash or curl input - json files

(charles barbosa) #1

I have read a lot of tutorials and I'm still not sure where to start so I want to just ask the question up front.

I have large inventory data files being pulled down in JSON format using API calls. Ideally, I want to parse these files and have them uploaded to Kibana relatively no touch.

Should I use logstash for this or a daemon with curl directly to elastic search?

Importing directly into ES, you have to index the JSON file first which adds a manual process.

However, I read log stash isn't meant to parse JSON files.

Whats the best way to accomplish this?
