Filebeat exclude lines that start with '+'

Hi all... i'm trying to use Filebeat (v1.2.3) to exclude all log lines that start with a '+' (plus sign)...

I've tried;

  exclude_lines: ["^\+"]

I get the error;

Loading config file error: YAML config parsing failed on /etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml: yaml: line 36: found unknown escape character. Exiting.

Can someone help me figure out how to explain this to filebeat?



the config file format is yaml and yaml has some rules how strings are handled. 5 in total. Plus the \`` character is treated as escape character in yaml too. When writing regular expressions always use single quotes (like') instead of double quote (like"). This disables the yaml parser from interpreting`.

Awsome! Thanks for the help!
