I wanted to upgrade my winlogbeat from 7.2.0 to 7.7.0 today but had to realize that the kafka output is broken.
In newer versions, the config option
output.kafka goes through a
constSelectorExpr and is lowercased before being passed to the kafka client. This means that I can't write to a topic of mine anymore as it contains an uppercase letter.
I guess that's not an inteded behavior especially as I don't see a reference to it in the CHANGELOG. Can you shed some light on that issue for me? I would really like to upgrade the release ASAP as I hope it solves another issue of mine with wrong @timestamp from winlog/ActiveDirectory and non UTC time zones..
NOTE: GitHub pointed me to first post here before opening an issue over there...
