Its possible activate the parser a json format for specific pod?

I'm using filebeat 7.8.0 inside my kubernetes cluster.

With that configuration

apiVersion: v1
kind: ConfigMap
  name: filebeat-config
  namespace: logging
    k8s-app: filebeat
  filebeat.yml: |-
    logging.level: warning
        - type: kubernetes
          node: ${NODE_NAME}
          hints.enabled: true
            type: container
              - /var/log/containers/*${}.log
            exclude_lines: '^[[:space:]]*$'
            multiline.pattern: '^[[:space:]]+(at|\.{3})\b|^Caused by:'
            multiline.negate: false
            multiline.match: after
      - add_cloud_metadata:
      - add_host_metadata:
      - decode_json_fields:
          fields: ["message"]
          target: "mycustomfield"
          overwrite_keys: true          
      - add_fields:
          target: ''
            gkeclustername: core-prod
            environment: prod

    setup.ilm.policy_name: gke_prod_core
      index.number_of_shards: 2
      index.number_of_replicas: 1 ${ELASTIC_CLOUD_ID}
    cloud.auth: ${ELASTIC_CLOUD_AUTH}

    setup.ilm.rollover_alias: "${INDEX_NAME_CLUSTER}"

      hosts: ['${ELASTICSEARCH_HOST:elasticsearch}:${ELASTICSEARCH_PORT:9200}']

But I'm finding a lots of errors

Any idea where is the problem?

Maybe filebeat can't parser all the fields message as a Json? I thought that if It couldn't, nothing would happen, maybe one error, but the problem I am seeing is that it stops sending logs after a while.

I don't know if I can define for each application in kubernetes that I know the message is a json activate in some way this for that specific application.

      - decode_json_fields:
          fields: ["message"]
          target: "mycustomfield"
          overwrite_keys: true     

Maybe with annotations in deployment of my service?

Any suggestion?

Thank you very much


Its possible add this decode_json_fields at annotation level in each pod?

I only found this

co.elastic.logs/json.keys_under_root: true
co.elastic.logs/json.add_error_key: true
co.elastic.logs/json.message_key: message

But I don't think it's the same

I don't found any more information in docs about that :cry:

Thank you

Any idea where can I go?

Thank you
