Convert fieldtype from neflow protocol .uint8


(Diego) #1

Hi all !
Im creating new fields from netflow information, for example get the ipaddres and resolve the hostname into another field.

      mutate {     
		add_field => { "IPAddress" => "%{host}" } 
		add_field => { "Hostname"  => "%{host}" } 
	  }              	  
	  dns {
	    nameserver => ["8.8.8.8"]
		reverse => ["Hostname"]
		action => replace
	  }

But when I do an "add_field => { "protocol_name" => "%{protocol}" }" from the protocol field, dont work, it print

"protocol_name" => "%{protocol}" and not the original value.
should be "protocol_name" => "1"

(in the netflow.yml loof like this
4:

  • :uint8
  • :protocol

and the output
{
"netflow" => {
"protocol" => 1,

Any idea why I cannot get the value from protocol field ?
Thanks
Diego

Done, The correct way is this.

 add_field =>  {"protocol_name" => "%{[netflow][protocol]}"}
