Working on a plugin here. I've got some records that come into elastic - and I'd like to preprocess and update them before the plugin gets ahold of them.
Easy enough to add a field to track if they have been processed, but I need somewhere to park a bit of code the periodically checks for new records and preprocesses any it finds. Preferably without having to add any new machines or require anyone to be connected to Kibana or my plug in.
Is this sonething that can be done on the server side of a Kibana plug-in or do I need to do it elsewhere? The records can be directly placed in the index without going through logstash, so placing it there wòn't get all the updates.
