Jsons and logstash

Hi Team,

I am having a json like this

item3:[value a,value b]

I am having filebeat sending the logs to logstash (and this is a multiline json having an array as well in key value pairs). I am trying to extract values by parsing json filters in logstash with out any sucesss. Can some one please help me to get a value, for example


so that i can take this to elastic search and then time series graph thro Kibana
I am having difficulty in

I'd like to see

  • a few lines of actual input (obfuscate values if you like but make sure the structure exactly matches reality),
  • your configuration files, and
  • an example event produced by Logstash (i.e. the effect your current configuration files have on the input).
