Filbeat 7.4 Kafka Input with Kafka SSL Enabled

My use case is to grab data from Kafka topic using Filebeat. I'm trying to implement Filebeat with Kafka Inputs. Following the document here. However my Kafka is SSL enabled, is Filebeat currently not supported to connect to Kafka with SSL? I don't see any configuration to pass Trustore and Keystore for the the Input?

The kafka input should work fine with SSL: it has the same SSL configuration options as most outputs and e.g. the TCP input. For details on the settings, see this doc page -- in the kafka input configuration you would include ssl.enabled: true and then whatever other specific settings you need in your case.

Thanks for pointing this out though, the SSL page should be linked directly from the Kafka input -- I'll update the documentation page.
