Automating Filebeat configuration setup


(Brett Larson) #1

Hello,
Is there any built-in way to update the configuration of the filebeat service on Windows? I am looking to update the cloud.auth and cloud.id settings for a large amount of servers after downloading the filebeat tool.

I see that there is a command line settings switch ( --E "SETTING_NAME=VALUE") however it doesn't look like this persists outside of the process.

I have a powershell script that is doing a find and replace of the YAML file but i'd like to simplify it by using the built in command line if possible.

Thank you!
