I know this has been discussed quite a few times but would really appreciate the help on this as I have went through all the solutions but none of them would work.
Filebeat service is not connecting to ES for direct output.
This is what I have done:
1: Kibana is running and I able to connect metricbeat,heartbeat and auditbeat vis ES.
2: Filebeat is also running as a service but when I put the index pattern "filebeat-*" in kibana it says not matching pattern found.
I have used the command : "curl http://localhost:9200/_cat/indices?v"
But I dont see any entry for Filebeat.
3: I used the command to export the template file: " .\filebeat.exe export template --es.version 6.1.1 | Out-File -Encoding UTF8 filebeat.template.json "
Then used the below command to install it in kibana:
" Invoke-RestMethod -Method Put -ContentType "applicat
ion/json" -InFile filebeat.template.json -Uri http://localhost:9200/_template/filebeat-6.0.1"
Below is the filebeat.yml file, everything is default and i have changed nothing.
Please help !
