Filebeat - don't add meta information


(Laura Varga) #1

I'm configuring filebeat 5.0-RC1 to output to kafka. I would like filebeat to output to the kafka topic the lines in the log file verbatim, but some meta tags are added, such as: @timestamp and type.
Is there any way to configure filebeat not to add this meta information?

You can use filters to remove most of the meta fields. But for @timestamp I have to check if it can be filtered out with the Kafka output as it is one of the core fields of each event.

the @timestamp field is at least required if kafka version 0.10 is configured.
