Logstash 2.3 with Elasticsearch 5.0


(Jay Dihenkar) #1

Can we use Logstash 2.3 with Elasticsearch 5.0?

Compatibility matrix says : It's not supported.

If not what can be the breaking changes to take note of?

It might be a matter of the default index template not being compatible. I highly doubt that ES 5.0's bulk indexing API doesn't work with Logstash 2.3.

So far for me ,

I have tested out LS 2.3 with ES 5.0, I have not seen anything break. Where exactly should I check for setup potentially breaking?


(Aaron Mildenstein) #4

The bundled template in 2.3 is not ideal for use with 5.0. Otherwise it should work.

Ok so how do I import older 'dashboards (searches, visualizations, dashboards) + logstash indices' to ELK 5.0?


(Aaron Mildenstein) #6

That's a different thing entirely. That question belongs in the Kibana section.
