Folder shared for elastcisearch logs


I want to store elasticsearch, kibana and logstash logs in a shared folder. Is that possible? I need to have a certain structure for the folder path? I am using 6.5 ELK version.

Thanks for your help!

I am not sure that's something that'd be supported, due to each process running as different users. That'd be a pain to manage.

Why do you want to do this?


Thanks for your response! I want to put the logs from elastic into a shared folder because i don't want to give access to my machine to several users but i want them to be able to see the logs if something is wrong with service.

Why not ingest them into Elasticsearch and let them find it with Kibana?


Best answer ever! :slight_smile:

Thanks! I will use this solution! :grin:
