Load multiple CSV to multiple index in a single conf file

What is the best way for loading multiple csv files to different indexes from one config file ?

Hello @rp12,

this is nothing I would have done before but as no one else has replied I will describe how I would attempt to do this.

I would probably start with Filebeat and see how far I would get using it.

You could ingest directly to Elasticsearch https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/master/elasticsearch-output.html

Set index as %{[csv_file_name]} (could get tricky with path delimiters) or a filed name if you have something like that on which you could determine to which index the document should go.

Logstash does have a CSV filter as well. You could use a file input using a glob pattern to pick up several CSV files and on the output again use a field name (or what ever could identify a single file) as part of the index name.

My Logstash output looks like this. Maybe it can give you some ideas

output {
  elasticsearch {
        hosts => [""]
        index => "%{[@metadata][log_prefix]}-%{[@metadata][index]}-%{[@metadata][date]}"
