Inserting data in Elasticsearch 8.0.0 preview

Hi team,

is there any way to insert bulk data into Elasticsearch 8.0.0 alpha 1, as there isnt any Logstash version compatible with this version.

  1. We have just moved to RC1, so I assume you want to use that.
  2. For all alpha, beta, and RC releases there was a Logstash version, download it at Download Logstash Free | Get Started Now | Elastic
  3. Did using Logstash 7.16 actually fail? It might just have worked, but keeping them in sync is definitely a good idea.
  4. This is for testing only, right :sweat_smile: ?

PS: Changing the title, since 8.1.0 will be a different release.

Thanks for the reply @xeraa .

1.Yes, this is for testing purpose only.

well, I was able to start Logstash but couldnt proceed smoothly because of the following error, Kindly provide your input on this:

  1. Please use the RC instead of the alpha1, which is just buggier with fewer features.
  2. This is your problem: [ERROR][logstash.config.sourceloader] No configuration found in the configured sources. There are couple of points right above that log message that are pointing at empty configs (or maybe wrong paths) or something about Ignoring the 'pipelines.yml' file because modules or command line options are specified. But it's a bit hard to guess what is going on there
