How to start logstash as root


(Mancharagopan) #1

Hello,

Can anyone tell me how to start logstash as root?
I am trying to use port 514 to syslog messages because some of my devices like WLC send syslog messages only to udp port 514.

I would advise against starting Logstash as a privileged user for security reasons; instead, configure your system to allow the Logstash user to bind to the port.

Relative answer here: Logstash bind to port 514
