You told logstash to look there for its configuration and it is not finding it. Is SIEM_CONFIG a file or a directory? Are you sure the user running logstash has read access to it?

Hi

logstash able to pull the logs from cloud based WAF, now i wanted to forward the logs to SSIM forwarder Ip, so i modify the config file.

output {
file {
path => "C:\Users\Downloads\logstash-7.10.2-windows-x86_64\logstash-7.10.2\bin"
codec => "line"
type => "syslog"
hosts => [...:10523"]
After that i am getting below error.
