Converting field with HEX value to ASCII

I have a dump file of JSON documents where many of the fields are in HEX. I want to import this into Elasticsearch using Logstash. Can Logstash convert HEX fields to ASCII?



Not by itself, no.

There's no built-in filter for this but it should be easy to do with a ruby filter and some custom Ruby code.

Or if you built a filter it'd be an awesome community resource :slight_smile:

Does it exists yet? Help me out, Im will make this plugin! How can I begin?

Forget it, I found IT:

I found a simple way if you are just doing double quotes. the trick is using single quotes around the double quote for replace

mutate {
gsub => ["request", "\x22", '"']
