Filebeat TTL value: is it seconds? milliseconds?

Is the "ttl" value in seconds or milliseconds?

The documentation does not say anything about it.

In Beats, all the time-related configuration options allow to specify the desired unit, by prefixing ns, us, ms, s, m or h.

So you can have:

ttl: 1m


ttl: 500ms

See Config File Data Types # Duration

Does it default to seconds though?

Yes, it defaults to seconds
