Logstash stopped processing because of an error: (SystemExit) exit org.jruby.exceptions.SystemExit: (SystemExit) exit

Hi,
I have a problem with my Logstash Component. When starting I get the following failure and can't find helpful information online. I use a SLES 15 with Logstash 7.16.1 and OpenJDK11.

May one of you have an idea, what the issue could be?

Thanks for your help

I found the Problem. There was a wrong symbol in the logstash.yml File. The certificat had ["cert"], but the sytem wants only "cert"

@tobias.greis can you say exactly what setting you had the problem with? I would expect you to get the message

Your settings are invalid. Reason: Setting "..." must be a String. Received: ["..."] (Array)

for that.

In the Logstash Configurationxpack certificate_autjority part.

Wrong:

xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.ssl.certificate_authority: [ "path/to/cert" ]

Correct:

xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.ssl.certificate_authority: "path/to/cert"

With 7.16.2 I get

Your settings are invalid. Reason: Setting "xpack.monitoring.Elasticsearch.ssl.certificate_authority" must be a String. Received: ["path/to/cert"] (Array)
