Deleting files after file beat processes them


I would like to know if there is a way of deleting log files once filebeat has finished processing.

We have files sent to an input folder, file beat then processes them. I would like to clear them down once it is done (as we no longer need the files anymore). Reading through posts, filebeat doesn't provide anything out of box (would be a nice enhancement :slight_smile: ).

How does everyone deal with this? Is it just a case of dumping the files to the input directory and then wait 24hours before removing?
