Can we Create dynamic xpath in logstash


#1

Here is my xml file

My input:

input {
file {
path => "D:/SampleELK/input.xml"
start_position => "beginning"
sincedb_path => "NUL"
codec => multiline {
pattern => "^"
negate => true
what => "previous"
multiline_tag => "multi_tagged"
auto_flush_interval => 1
}
}
}
filter {
xml {
source => "message"
target => "parsed"
store_xml => "false"
xpath => [
"NetReport/@datetime", "date_time",
"NetReport/Net/@managedClientID", "cid" ,
"/NetReport/Net/category[@name='Software']/item[@name='Software Application']//property[@name='Name']/text()", "Pname",
"/NetReport/Net/category[@name='Software']/item[@name='Software Application']//property[@name='Caption']/text()", "Caption",
]
}
}
output{
stdout { codec => rubydebug }
}

So, my question is, in xpath, i want to pass dynamic values for @name='Software' or @name='PC Core' or @name='xyz',..... and repeat the xpath to give more dynamic values as my xml has many lines of code. Is this possible?
Ex:-
/NetReport/Net/category[@name='Software']/
/NetReport/Net/category[@name='PC Core']/
/NetReport/Net/category[@name='xyz']/
......
......

Please help me as i have very long xml file and cannot mention all of them in the xpath. Thanks in advance
