Filebeat autodiscover for local log Docker driver

Hi, there, first post here.

Suppose this Filebeat autodiscover configuration for Docker containers:

    - type: docker
      hints.enabled: true
      hints.default_config.enabled: false

This config works like a cham if using default Docker json-log driver, that is, it harvests the files from /var/lib/docker/containers/*/*-json.log.

Docker still uses the default json-log driver for backward compatibility, but recommends local log driver for performance and rotate features.

In practice, the logs change format and are moved from /var/lib/docker/containers/*/*-json.log to /var/lib/docker/containers/*/local-logs/container.log.

This can be configured changing hints.default_config to:

        type: container
          - /var/log/containers/${}/local-log/container.log

This new file isn't in JSON format and isn't parsed.

Is it possible to use local log Docker driver with autodiscover?

Best regards,
Luís Sousa
