Logstash Issue in finding the filter

Hi Team,

I am trying to get the logstash configured but I am unable to start the logstash with the below error.

The file exists but still the logstash fails to open/read it.

What does 'ls -ld /root' look like, and what user are you running logstash as?

It was just holding execution permission. When I gave read & exec permission, it worked.

[root@githublogmaster conf.d]# ls -ld /root
dr-xr-x---. 16 root root 4096 Sep  6 12:49 /root
[root@githublogmaster conf.d]# chmod 755 /root
[root@githublogmaster conf.d]# ls -ld /root
drwxr-xr-x. 16 root root 4096 Sep  6 12:49 /root
[root@githublogmaster conf.d]#

One last doubt, I got the below error while running the logstash. May I know what it means in details.

Note : I run elasicsearch with Docker Swarm(7.9.1) image same as logstash version.

DEPRECATION WARNING: Connecting to an OSS distribution of Elasticsearch using the default distribution of Logstash will stop working in Logstash 8.0.0

Thank you
