Elastic APM RUM: Can't Upload Sourcemaps

Kibana version: 6.8.1
Elasticsearch version: 6.8.1
APM Server version: 6.8.1
APM Agent language and version: JS RUM "@elastic/apm-rum": "^4.3.1",
Original install method and version:
Yarn 1.7.0
Node 8.14.0
Webpack 4
Symfony Webpack Encore 0.26

Is there anything special in your setup?
I have multiple endpoints in my webpack, so I am trying to upload multiple sourcemaps. For example:

Description of the problem including expected versus actual behavior. Please include screenshots (if relevant):
I have followed these two guides.

When I try to upload a single sourcemap file from cURL I get a 202 Accepted, but the exptected sourcemap index is not created and cannot be found in Kibana (apm-(version)-sourcemaps). The error is also not using the sourcemap.

curl -v -X POST http://apm:8200/assets/v1/sourcemaps   -F service_name="test-js"   -F service_version="314d1f2"   -F bundle_filepath="http://www.local.test/build/amp/search.314d1f2.js"   -F sourcemap=@/var/www/html/symfony/web/build/amp/search.314d1f2.js.map
Note: Unnecessary use of -X or --request, POST is already inferred.

Here is the relevant JSON produced by the APM error caused by a JS error:

According to this docs: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/apm/server/current/sourcemap-indices.html#sourcemap-example there should be a index:

Source maps are stored in separate indices of the format apm-[version]-sourcemap .

But this is not the case, even though the file is successfully uploaded:

In addition to the cURL command, I have tried following the guide's advice and using Node to upload the sourcemaps.

console.log('Uploading sourcemaps!');
var request = require('request');
var path = require('path');
var fs = require('fs');
var git = require('git-rev-sync')
var serviceVersion = git.short('./../');
var directory = './web/build/amp';
var directoryPath = path.join(__dirname, directory);

var urls = [];
var files = fs.readdirSync(directoryPath);
files.forEach(function(file) {
    if (file.includes(serviceVersion) && file.includes('.map')) {
            map: file,
            url: file.replace('.map', '')

urls.forEach(function(url) {
    var formData = {
        sourcemap: fs.createReadStream(directoryPath + '/' + url.map),
        service_version: serviceVersion,
        bundle_filepath: 'http://www.local.test/build/amp/'+url.url,
        service_name: 'test-js'
    request.post({url: 'http://apm:8200/assets/v1/sourcemaps',formData: formData}, function (err, resp, body) {
        if (err) {
            console.log('Error while uploading sourcemaps!', err)
        } else {
            console.log('Sourcemap uploaded: http://www.local.test/build/amp/'+url.url)

The results for this file are as follows, which indicates successful upload.

Sourcemap uploaded: http://www.local.test/build/amp/vendor.314d1f2.js

I am using these two docker images:
image: docker.elastic.co/elasticsearch/elasticsearch:6.8.1
image: docker.elastic.co/apm/apm-server:6.8.1

I don't know where to go from here, or how to further debug why my sourcemaps aren't taking effect even on successful upload.

Thank you!

Hey @Emirii, welcome to the group. Based on the screenshot of the available apm indices, it appears all APM data is directed to apm-%{[beat.version]}-%{+yyyy.MM.dd} index. I expect the following query will return the sourcemaps you have uploaded, can you confirm?

GET apm-*/_search
  "query": {
    "term": {
      "processor.event": "sourcemap"

If so, dId you intend for that to be the case? The recommended index configuration in 6.8.1 for apm-server.yml is:

    - index: "apm-%{[beat.version]}-sourcemap"                                                                                                                                                                                                
        processor.event: "sourcemap"

    - index: "apm-%{[beat.version]}-error-%{+yyyy.MM.dd}"
        processor.event: "error"

    - index: "apm-%{[beat.version]}-transaction-%{+yyyy.MM.dd}"
        processor.event: "transaction"

    - index: "apm-%{[beat.version]}-span-%{+yyyy.MM.dd}"
        processor.event: "span"

    - index: "apm-%{[beat.version]}-metric-%{+yyyy.MM.dd}"
        processor.event: "metric"

    - index: "apm-%{[beat.version]}-onboarding-%{+yyyy.MM.dd}"
        processor.event: "onboarding"

If it is intended, you should configure apm-server to look for sourcemaps in apm-*, replacing the default of apm-*-sourcemap. This can be done in apm-server.yml with apm-server.rum.source_mapping.index_pattern.

Thank you for taking the time @gil ! Your query to find the sourcemaps showed me they were indeed all bundled into the one index. I had the configuration all default except for the required (elasticsearch connection info and enable RUM).

I enabled and changed the configuration of server.rum.source_mapping.index_pattern: "apm-*" and RUM was successful at displaying the sourcemapped code! I will also check out your recommended configuration as well.

Excellent, thanks for reporting back. Glad to hear it is sorted out.
