Can we omit filter in this case?

Hi Guys,

If I am accepting input over beats can I completely omit filter? I mean just input { beats port 5044} and then output {
elasticsearch {
hosts => ["9200"]

What beat(s) are you using?

I am using filebeat & Packetbeats

You can for packetbeat. Filebeat will depend on what format the source logs are in.

I see but are they not already parsing the logs before being sent?

No, filebeat does no parsing, it just ships.
