We are upgrading from 2.4 to 5.1.2 and now we see that logstash fails.
I guess it's a bug in mutate plugin.


(Magnus B├Ąck) #2

Yes, it's a bug (see below). But why are you attempting to convert a boolean into a boolean?


(Stef Fen) #3

Because we don't know if it was successfully converted to a boolean before.
It's like a safety net.

And it seems to work in logstash 2.4.x.
