How to Ignore some messages from Kafka topic when consuming using Logstash


#1

I have ten's of different messages in a kafka topic. I need to just consume messages that has only "America" in it. I have tried some suggestions available on the blog but no luck, could anyone help?

Flow is App -> Kafka topic -> Logstash consume pipeline and output to local ES.

Sample config:
input {
kafka {
bootstrap_servers => "broker:9093"
security_protocol => "SSL"
ssl_keystore_location => "/etc/logstash/keystore.jks"
ssl_keystore_password => "password"
ssl_truststore_location => "/etc/logstash/truststore.jks"
ssl_truststore_password => "password"
topics => ["topic1"]
codec => "json"
}
}
filter {
json{
source => "message"
}
}
output {
if "America" in [message] {
elasticsearch {
hosts => localhost
manage_template => false
index => "test"
}
}
}

Show us an example unwanted document. Copy/paste the raw JSON from Kibana's JSON tab.

"_type": "doc",
"_id": "XX",
"_version": 1,

So I have different message_type's. Ex: CREATE_ACCOUNT, DELETE_ACCOUNT
I would like to only consume CREATE_ACCOUNT.

I was trying:

filter {
if [@meta.message_type] == "DELETE_ACCOUNT" { drop{ } }
}

but no luck, any help is appreciated! TIA.

filter {
if [@meta.message_type] == "DELETE_ACCOUNT" { drop{ } }
}

Replace [@meta.message_type] with [meta][message_type].
