I have a filebeat.yml file, in which I want to define multiple filebeat inputs. I understand each input needs to be configured separately, but that would be sub-optimal in my opinion, since I could re-use a lot of properties that are shared across multiple inputs.
As an example, looking at this link, they have 2 inputs: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/master/configuration-filebeat-options.html
My use case is, I need to define the multiline pattern settings, which happen to be the exact same between all my filebeat inputs. Ideally I do not want to repeat the same thing over and over again.
Looking at documentation, I couldn't find my answer, but hopefully I am wrong. It would be a lot of config duplication if this is not supported.
