File meta data fields


(BM) #1

We have a file that contains information written by another application. It only has one line, but doesn't contain any timestamp information. I'd like to use the timestamp on the file itself. In general, since filebeat is reading files, shouldn't it make some file metadata like (creationTime, modifiedTime, lastReadTime, creator, etc) available to the plugin as optional fields?

This sounds like a reasonable request. Could you file an issue at https://github.com/elastic/beats/issues/new?
