Logstash Support for EXCEL


(Rahul Nama) #1

Hello Team

I've an excel sheet having data of tickets. Now I'm converting the Excel to CSV and feeding to logstash as input.

But to convert to csv, it requires a manual intervention which we don't want.

Is there anyway to automate this? or as an alternative do logstash supports Excel as well?

Please suggest :slight_smile:
Thanks for your time

If you're using linux you could always download a XSLX to CSV converter, then automate it in Cron. You'll probably need to write a short script, something along the lines of if .XLSX file exists in this folder, run conversion tool and just get Cron to run that script every 24 hours.

Not sure how you'd go about it with windows, although you could probably do something similar using Scheduled Tasks (Windows version of Cron)

Hope this helps.

@SteveBaker
Thank you for the suggestion.

I'm using windows. May be we can run a program or any Job to convert it. But don't logstash have support for excel?

No, there's no input plugin available for that (but it wouldn't be impossible to write one).
