Filebeat Xpack


(Surendra Kotte) #1

Hello,

I am a newbie to ELK. I configured Elasticsearch/Kibana/FileBeat, config was working till xpack was installed. xpack authentication works fine for ElasticSearch/Kibana but filebeat has issues on restart:

Can anyone help with this?

It doesn't look like you configured any authentication credentials in your Filebeat config.
We have docs on how to configure Beats to work with X-Pack:

Tim,

Following instructions i was able to bring up the server and ingest data from remote to ES.

Thanks,
Surendra.
