Logstash http_poller plugin help


#1

Hello,

I am trying to use the http_poller plugin to pull data from an API end point such as the Quandl service.

First I tested the http_poller using ES url: http://localhost:9200. That worked.

Then I changed url to an quandl API. I verified that my query works using a rest client app.

I get an error message and need some help debugging.

---- my config file
input {
http_poller {
urls => {
method => get
q1 => "https://www.quandl.com/api/v3/datatables/WIKI/PRICES.json?date.gte=20170201&date.lt=20170204&ticker=MSFT&api_key=my_key_goes_here"
headers => {
Accept => "application/json"
}
}
codec => "json"
request_timeout => 60
metadata_target => "http_poller_metadata"
schedule => { cron => "* * * * * UTC"}
}
}

output {
stdout {
codec => rubydebug
}
}

Snippet of the error message:

Thanks,

The back trace is the most interesting thing.
Could you provide this ?

It is because your "urls" config is wrong.
Up to the plugin doc, it should be :

urls => {
    q1 => {
        method => get
        url => "https://www.quandl.com/api/v3/datatables/WIKI/PRICES.json?date.gte=20170201&date.lt=20170204&ticker=MSFT&api_key=my_key_goes_here"
        headers => {
            Accept => "application/json"
        }
    }
}

Thanks Fabien!

You're welcome :slight_smile:

If your problem is solved, could you mark my previous comment as "solution" to close the topic ?
