Logstash filter plugin

I am using Logstash version 7.14.0. I would like to parse message to the top level of message. So this is my configuration:

        json {
          skip_on_invalid_json => true
          source => "message"
          tag_on_failure => ["_jsonparsefailure"]

When the message is JSON, it works. If message is not JSON, I would expect that the message will be tagged with _jsonparsefailure but it is not true. From the documentation, I can see that with setting skip_on_invalid_json => true the json filter will be skipped so I assume it will also skipped the tagging?

I would expect from this configuratoin that in case, message is not JSON, it will just tag the message but not print any warning into logs - because of skip_on_invalid_json => true.

Now I do not know how to filter messages which are not json.

Could anybody explain me if I understand correctly and explain, how to achieve to tag a not JSON messages ?

Thank you.

Both the error message and the tagging are conditional upon the same option in the code. You cannot get one without the other.
