The WebSocket input plugin can connect to WebSocket endpoints and receive data streamed over such connections. Most URLs don't support this so you can't just pass any URL. If you have a URL that returns data that you'd like to get into Logstash your best bet is to download the data to a local file and read that file. If the data can be updated over time and you want to ingest only the updates that requires some work.
