Documentation issue? Default path to Filebeat configuration (/filebeat.yml)


(Strarsis) #1

(Filebeat version 1.3.1)

In Filebeat command line help (filebeat --help),
the default configuration file path is indicated as "/filebeat.yml".

However, practically testing this shows that it actually looks for the configuration file in "./filebeat.yml" (relative to cwd ("./[...]") where the command is invoked).

Is this a valid issue?
