Custom API integration

I'm running into issues while implementing the Custom API integration which sends API get requests. I have setup successfully other integrations using the Custom Logs integration, however, the Custom API integration doesn't work for me. These are some of the details:

  • I'm using basic authentication.
  • The output of the API call doesn't need pagination
  • The agent that the integration is running on is able to reach the API URL
  • Certs from the application server are valid.

Can someone advise what I'm missing?

These are the log errors:

[elastic_agent.filebeat][error] request failed
[elastic_agent.filebeat][error] Error while processing http request: failed to execute rf.collectResponse: failed to execute http client.Do: failed to execute http client.Do: Get "https://myserver:1111/api/something": GET https://myserver:1111/api/something giving up after 6 attempts

Looking closer at the JSON output, I noticed the missing square brackets [ ] around the API response. Also, the ContentType from the Response Headers is application/json;charset=UTF-8 which as per the Response decode settings comment is not supported. Can someone advise a workaround for this ContentType.
