Elastic Cloud - Not able to vizualize data from filebeats

Hello team, I'm not able to visualize any data coming from filebeat.

I'm new on Elastic. I setup an Elastic Cloud based instance and I would like to send logs from my computer (using filebeat).

FIlebeat.yml config file is ok and I can see that data is being shipped to my cloud instance as my document count is increasing (Elasticsearch -> Index Management -> filebeat-7.8.0-2020.08.18-000001). Nevertheless, when I go to Kibana -> DIscover, nothing is being shown for the filebeat-7.8.0-2020.08.18-000001 index.

What am I missing here?


Did you setup an Index Pattern?
-> Stack Management -> kibana -> Index Patterns -> + Create Index Pattern -> And for your Index it should be "filebeat-*"

After that you can select the index pattern you want to be shown in the Discover Tab of Kibana

Kind regards,

The better option there is to run the setup command - https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/filebeat-installation-configuration.html#setup-assets
