Filebeat Mutiline not working

(Aman Singhal) #1

i have filebeat/logstash/elasticsearch/kibana (6.0.3) version

I tried multi-line with filebeat for sample logs first but its not working

log file
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.example.myproject.Book.getTitle(
at com.example.myproject.Author.getBookTitles(
at com.example.myproject.Bootstrap.main(

filebeat (yml)


  • type: log
    • /var/test.log

multiline.pattern: '^[[:space:]]'
multiline.negate: false
multiline.match: after

hosts: [""]


"message": " at com.example.myproject.Bootstrap.main(",
"prospector": {
"type": "log"

Not combiing the lines

I suggest you edit your post and move it to the Filebeat category. It's not a Logstash question.
