I am using Logstash 5.5 to parse my logs. I have following format of the logs:
time taken for doing transfer once for all files in seconds=23 transfer start time= 201708030959 transfer end time = 201708030959.
I am using KV plugin to get the key/value pair from this file. I want to convert received "time" key's value "201708030959" to actual timestamp. I am using following configuration:
allow_duplicate_values => false
trim_key => "\s"
value_split => "="
match => ["time","YYYYMMddHHmm"]
But , it does not convert "time" to date/timestamp when I check in Kibana. It keeps it as String. Please let me know how can I convert this string time value to actual timestamp?
