Improve readability of Exclude_lines:

Ok, Iffen I want to exclude me some lines, I do it thusly:
exclude_lines: ["exclude me","and me","and me too"]
This works, but I have some long strings In need to exclude, and it makes it tough to read.

When setting paths, you do it like this:

  • "some path"
  • "another path".

Can I use the same "-" list to define exclude lines eg:


  • "exclude me"
  • "and me"
  • "and me too"

I tried, and didnt seem to work.

The config file is standard YAML so you can write the sequence either way (block or flow style).

You can check that your file is valid YAML with

      - DEBUG
      - TRACE
      - /var/log/messages
