I'm running filebeat on Windows (v1.2.1) and trying to get it to exclude lines starting with hashes. I believe I have configured it correctly but it still seems to send through lines beginning with hash to LogStash. I've tried with: ['^\#'] and ['^#'] but both fail to work. Is there something obvious I'm doing wrong?
filebeat: prospectors: - paths: - C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1\*.LOG input_type: log exclude_lines: ['^\#'] registry_file: "C:/ProgramData/filebeat/registry" output: logstash: hosts: ["logstash-server.test.local:5044"]
