FIlebeat Dynamic Configuration

Hello i am a new user,
I currently have Filebeat installed on a VM.
I have several config files corresponding to all the applications that can be installed on the VM.
I know where all the application files would be if they were installed on the vm.
Is there a way to configure filebeat such that it only tries to access certain paths when they are available? i.e when the application creates the folders.

Hi @ogba,

You can configure all needed prospectors as explained here

Once files are available, filebeat will detect that and start fetching them

Best regards

Thank you for the response, that is what i need.
