I configured my prospector to use recursive globs, but filebeat is ignoring the configuration and exiting with the error below:
Error in initing prospector: Failed to resolve recursive globs in config: multiple ** in "/etc/Jenkins/Home/jobs/** /builds/**/build.xml"
Here is my config snippet for reference.
AFAICT from the documentation, only a single recursive glob pattern per entry is allowed.
** into recursive glob patterns. With this feature enabled, the rightmost
** in each path is expanded into a fixed number of glob patterns. For example:
/foo/** expands to
/foo/*/* , and so on. If enabled it expands a single
** into a 8-level deep
Are the directories nested more than 8 levels deep from the leftmost recursive glob?
I misinterpreted how to use recursive glob patterns and a single wildcard is all that I needed.
I do want to mention, I based my initial question on a previously configured filebeat setup that used multiple recursive glob patterns in a single path. Surprisingly, it works the exact same as my current configuration.
Initial Reference: RHEL6 Filebeat v5.6
Version currently using: MacOS Filebeat v6.5
Thanks for the help. You can close this topic.
