Expected one of #, { in logstash configuration parsing

Hi,
I am receiving the below error of checking logstash parsing:

Here's my config:

input {
  beats {
    port => 5044
  }
}

# The filter part of this file is commented out to indicate that it is
# optional.

filter {
  if "onm-server" in [tags] {
    grok {
      keep_empty_captures => true
      patterns_dir => ["/etc/logstash/conf.d/patterns"]
      match => { "message" => "%{DATE:date}%{SPACE}%{MONTH:month}%{SPACE}%{YEAR:year}%{SPACE}%{TIME:time}%{SPACE}%{SPACE}%{LOGLEVEL:log_level}%{SPACE}%{START_END:msg_onm}" }
      tag_on_failure => ["grok1"]
      remove_tag => [ "_grokparsefailure" ]
    }

    grok {
      patterns_dir => ["/etc/logstash/conf.d/patterns"]
      match => { "message" => "%{DATE:date}%{SPACE}%{MONTH:month}%{SPACE}%{YEAR:year}%{SPACE}%{TIME:time}%{SPACE}%{SPACE}%{LOGLEVEL:log_level}%{SPACE}%{START_END:msg_onm}\s+%{LOGLEVEL:log_err}%{SPACE}%{NUMBER:error_no}\s+" }
      tag_on_failure => ["grok2"]
      remove_tag => [ "_grokparsefailure" ]
    }

    if "grok2" in [tags] {
      tag_on_failure => []
    } else if "grok1" in [tags] {
      remove_tag => [ "grok1" ]
    }
    mutate {
      convert => { "error_no" => "integer" }
    }


  }

I've been looking at the if condition but I was not able to track down the issue.

You do not have any filters, e.g. mutate, defined in this block.


(Shantanu Deshpande) #3

Tried by adding mutate { remove_tag => ["grok2"] }, but still didn't work.

Update:

This worked. Just a question, why is that tag_on_failure requires mutate filter and remove_tag doesn't? I only added mutate filter in if condition only.

It's very hard to understand what you're asking. An example might help.


(Shantanu Deshpande) #5

Okay. Here's an example:

if "grok2" in [tags] {
      tag_on_failure => []
} else if "grok1" in [tags] {
      mutate { remove_tag => ["grok1"] }
}

If you can see we're using mutate for remove_tag. But tag_on_failure works without it (at least I think it does, I might be wrong). I just wanted to know if there's a difference as I am trying to explain between these two.


(Magnus Bäck) #6

Putting tag_on_failure => [] alone inside an if block doesn't work. tag_on_failure is an option to the grok filter.


(Shantanu Deshpande) #7

Okay. Thanks for the information.
