Clarification on logstash configuration

I am trying to install ELK stack 7.3.2, I (filebeat included) have used the the following logstash conf., the fieldname logappname is not found in the kibana. Am I missing something?

input {
beats {
port => "5044"

The filter part of this file is commented out to indicate that it is


filter {
grok {
match => { "message" => "%{TIMESTAMP_ISO8601:logtimestamp} [%{WORD:thread}] %{LOGLEVEL:loglevel} %{GREEDYDATA:logmessage}"}
grok {
match => { "path" => "%{GREEDYDATA:logappname}"}
date {
match => ["logtimestamp", "ISO8601"]
target => "@timestamp"

mutate {
		remove_field => ["logtimestamp"]

output {
#stdout { codec => rubydebug }
elasticsearch { hosts => [ "localhost:9200" ]}


Can you provide some more context around the logappname value?

What data are you expecting to see in there? Is this the field that you are looking for;

Yes, and this is the path details configured in filebeat

  • type: log

    Change to true to enable this input configuration.

    enabled: true

    Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.

    #- /var/log/*.log
    #- c:\programdata\elasticsearch\logs*

    • C:\Data\Logs*

and the log names under this folder is like TaskGenerator_20190915.1.log
and I need to have the value "TaskGenerator" for logappname
