I've been looking around to find a way to ship events from various
libbeat applications to Logstash, but I need to do it over HTTP using basic authentication.
I have seen that
libbeat is able to ship to Elasticsearch using this method, but I am trying to do so for Logstash.
I have seen that Logstash has a plugin for http input, but I am unaware if this would work with any
libbeat application, and there is no reference of it anywhere.
Note: I am not asking for HTTPS or any SSL, only HTTP with basic authentication
Is it possible to somehow use the libbeat 'elasticsearch' http-based output with Logstash http input?
Does anyone have any experience with this?
Thanks for any advice.
PS: I've seen this thread, but it seems to be asking specifically about HTTPS authentication, using SSL.
