Cmd to locate filebeat config

Hi, may i please know the command to locate the filebeat config file using command prompt using ubuntu? Thank you for your time.

The location of the configuration file depends on the installation method. There is no common command to locate this file. Maybe system tools like 'locate' or 'find' on CLI or UI based file finders.

If you installed the deb, then the config file is in /etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml.

When starting up filebeat on console, it logs config and data directories. Just run with filebeat -e -v (make sure service is not running), stop filebeat and check log output.
