HAProxy dashboard, error loading


(Philip Nunn) #1

Using Filebeat 6.5.1:
After moving the HAProxy dashboard object to "..\kibana\6\dashboard\Filebeat-haproxy-overview.json" and attempting to run filebeat setup --dashboards, the following error occurs >

Any ideas? Has anyone imported the HAProxy dashboard successfully? All other dashboards and objects import successfully.

This seems like a bug to me. I converted all of the searchSourceJSON objects to type text and it then got past that error, but now fails on uiStateJSON object. After looking at all of the other module json files, HAProxy is the only one that uses pure json in the config. The others use text for the following objects: searchSourceJSON, uiStateJSON, viState, optionsJSON, panelsJSON, (seemingly any nested json objects). It seems the filebeat parser is expecting text here instead.

Fixed by converting all nested json objects to text strings. Found a couple other issues and will post a bug report on github.
