Hi Guys I am a total noob to ElasticStack and Filebeats.
I have a custom log file in a JSON format, the app we are using will output an 1 entry per file as follows
I am trying to ingest this into ElasticSearch. I believe this is possible as I am using ES5.X
I have configured my FileBeat prospector, I have attempted to at least pull out 1 field from the file for now, namely the Cuid
- input_type: log
json.keys_under_root : true
tags : ["json"]
The Logstash hosts
When I start the FileBeat , it seems to harvest the files, As I get an entry in the FileBeat Registry files
2017-03-20T13:21:08Z INFO Harvester started for file: C:\Files\output\001-Account-20032017105923.json
2017-03-20T13:21:27Z INFO Non-zero metrics in the last 30s: filebeat.harvester.closed=160 publish.events=320 filebeat.harvester.started=160 registrar.states.update=320 registrar.writes=2
However, I can't seem to find the data within Kibana. I am not entirely sure how to find it?
I have ensured the FileBeat templates are loaded in kibana.
I have tried to read the documentation and I think I understand it correctly but I am still very hazy, as I am totally new to the stack.
