Error importing URL/file: Failed to import index-pattern: : error loading /tmp/tmp401063577/beats-dashboards-5.4.0/filebeat/index-pattern/filebeat.json: couldn't load json. Error: 401 Unauthorized


(Sandeep Gawali) #1

I have installed a new version of elk 5.5.0 alongwith xpack >> next i tried to configure the filebeat index its giving me below error message while importing the dashboard i am getting the below error message -

Error importing URL/file: Failed to import index-pattern: Failed to load directory /tmp/tmp401063577/beats-dashboards-5.4.0/filebeat/index-pattern:
** error loading /tmp/tmp401063577/beats-dashboards-5.4.0/filebeat/index-pattern/filebeat.json: couldn't load json. Error: 401 Unauthorized**

Also I am unable to load the default index (filebeat)in kibana dashboard .. not sure whats wrong with my configuration . Please help me I am tired of searching the solution.


(Parth Shah) #2

@sandy007 401 means is unauthorized.

Try importing the dashboard as

./scripts/import_dashboards -es http://X.X.X.X:9200 -user elastic -pass elastic


(Sandeep Gawali) #3

Excellent !!! Appreciated!!! Thank you !!!

dashboards imported successfully now but still i am not able to set the default index ipattern in kibana .. how to get it resolved?

Attached is the screenshot of my Kibana


(Parth Shah) #4

@sandy007 You have to load the index pattern in es before it hits to kibana.

try this -

curl -u elastic:elastic -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/_template/filebeat' -d@/etc/filebeat/filebeat.template.json


(Sandeep Gawali) #5

Hi parth,

i tried loading index pattern with said command but still no luck .. do i need to make changes to my filebeat.yml file ??

Thanks


(Parth Shah) #6

@sandy007 Check your filebeat logs and es logs, look if your filebeat.yml is a valid yml if you have edited (http://www.yamllint.com/)


(Sandeep Gawali) #7

It says valid yaml


(Sandeep Gawali) #8

parth,

below is the output -


filebeat.modules: ~
filebeat.prospectors:

input_type: log
paths: 
  - /var/log/*.log

output.elasticsearch:
hosts:
- "myip:9200"


(Parth Shah) #9

That's all you have under your filebeat.yml? Can you paste your entire filebeat.yml?

Your yaml should include at least es or logstash as an output.


(Sandeep Gawali) #10

after pasting full file i am getting below output -


filebeat.modules: ~
filebeat.prospectors:

input_type: log
paths: 
  - /var/log/*.log

logging.files:
path: /var/log/filebeat
logging.to_files: true
output.elasticsearch:
hosts:
- "myip:9200"

Do I need to paste the entire file here?.. its huge one .


(Parth Shah) #11

Paste what's not commented out. Any logs would also be helpful.

here is my filebeat prospector configuratioj -

#########################################################
#=========================== Filebeat prospectors =============================

List of prospectors to fetch data.

filebeat.prospectors:

Each - is a prospector. Most options can be set at the prospector level, so

you can use different prospectors for various configurations.

Below are the prospector specific configurations.

Type of the files. Based on this the way the file is read is decided.

The different types cannot be mixed in one prospector

Possible options are:

* log: Reads every line of the log file (default)

* stdin: Reads the standard in

#------------------------------ Log prospector --------------------------------

  • input_type: log

    Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.

    To fetch all ".log" files from a specific level of subdirectories

    /var/log//.log can be used.

    For each file found under this path, a harvester is started.

    Make sure not file is defined twice as this can lead to unexpected behaviour.

    paths:

    • /var/log/*.log
    • /var/log/filebeat/*.log
    • /var/log/elasticsearch/logs/*.log
    • /var/log/httpd/access_log-*
    • /var/log/secure-*
    • /var/log/messages
    • /var/log/boot.log
      #- c:\programdata\elasticsearch\logs*

    Configure the file encoding for reading files with international characters

    following the W3C recommendation for HTML5 (http://www.w3.org/TR/encoding).

    Some sample encodings:

    plain, utf-8, utf-16be-bom, utf-16be, utf-16le, big5, gb18030, gbk,

    hz-gb-2312, euc-kr, euc-jp, iso-2022-jp, shift-jis, ...

    #encoding: plain

    Exclude lines. A list of regular expressions to match. It drops the lines that are

    matching any regular expression from the list. The include_lines is called before

    exclude_lines. By default, no lines are dropped.

    #exclude_lines: ["^DBG"]

Include lines. A list of regular expressions to match. It exports the lines that are

matching any regular expression from the list. The include_lines is called before

exclude_lines. By default, all the lines are exported.

#include_lines: ["^ERR", "^WARN"]

Exclude files. A list of regular expressions to match. Filebeat drops the files that

are matching any regular expression from the list. By default, no files are dropped.

exclude_files: [".gz$"]

Optional additional fields. These field can be freely picked

to add additional information to the crawled log files for filtering

#fields:

level: debug

review: 1

Set to true to store the additional fields as top level fields instead

of under the "fields" sub-dictionary. In case of name conflicts with the

fields added by Filebeat itself, the custom fields overwrite the default

fields.

#fields_under_root: false

Ignore files which were modified more then the defined timespan in the past.

ignore_older is disabled by default, so no files are ignored by setting it to 0.

Time strings like 2h (2 hours), 5m (5 minutes) can be used.

#ignore_older: 0

Type to be published in the 'type' field. For Elasticsearch output,

the type defines the document type these entries should be stored

in. Default: log

#document_type: log

How often the prospector checks for new files in the paths that are specified

for harvesting. Specify 1s to scan the directory as frequently as possible

without causing Filebeat to scan too frequently. Default: 10s.

#scan_frequency: 10s

Defines the buffer size every harvester uses when fetching the file

#harvester_buffer_size: 16384

Maximum number of bytes a single log event can have

All bytes after max_bytes are discarded and not sent. The default is 10MB.

This is especially useful for multiline log messages which can get large.

#max_bytes: 10485760

(Parth Shah) #15

@sandy007 Can you upgrade beats dashboards to match ELK stack version? I see that you running ELK v5.5.0 and beats v5.4.0.


(Sandeep Gawali) #16

Sure parth,

Do i need to update it through yum or rpm ? or is there any other easy way to get it done ?


(Parth Shah) #17

@sandy007 https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/libbeat/5.5/upgrading-minor-versions.html

Before upgrading can you also paste your logstash pipeline config?


(Sandeep Gawali) #18

Hi parth,

I did not configure the logstash for this .. i am just using elasticsearch to parse the logs directly.

as given in above filebeat yaml.


(Parth Shah) #19

there's still 401. are you sure you have same default creds of es? elastic/changeme?


(Sandeep Gawali) #20

Yes Parth ,
