Exclude files to be processed

I currently use Logstash to read files in my directory. I use the input from file plugin and use path/to/logs/*.log then use exclude statements to exclude the logs I don't want transported into my ES cluster.

Is there a way to exclude logs with filebeat? I want to test using filebeat in my environment but I don't want to import all files in that directory into my test cluster. Can this be done?


Currently this is not possible with Filebeat, but we track this as an enhancement request and plan it for the next release.

Thank you
