[Beginner] Collecting Live-Data from Webserver


#1

Hey there, im just getting started with Elasticsearch and want to get data from a Webserver
The Webserver offeres an interface to get the data in JSON format.

Here are links for the website:

The Data in JSON-Format (see link below)
http://www.airleader.biz/airleader/interfaces/json.jsp

Whats the best way to import the Data to ElasticSearch ?
I thought about using a webcrawler and transfer it elasticsearch, but because im just getting started with elasticsearch there might be better solution.

Thx for your help in advance.

You may want to look at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-module-http.html instead of filebeat. It can pull from an API.
