Logstash in docker

Hello everyone!
I am having some problem when delploying logstash in docker. When I run container and go inside, I don't see /etc/logstash/ directory. How can I configure inputs, filters, and outputs?

@Asmaa_Sarih you have to create a configuration file and then copy it to /usr/share/logstash/pipeline/ within the container. Check out the documentation on Configuring Logstash for Docker

@Michael_Fairchild How I can copy it to /usr/share/logstash/pipeline/, can you give me an example please

In your Dockerfile, you can do something like ADD logstash.conf /usr/share/logstash/pipeline. https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/docker-config.html has additional examples.

Thank you for your response,
I don't have a dockerfile , I work just with docker-compose.yml file

is it necessary to use dockerfile for logstash configuration or I can do that in docker-compose.yml

You'll need to add a volume to the config directory and define the command to read that config.

    - ./:/config-dir
    command: logstash -f /config-dir/logstash.conf
