Logstash with x-pack authentication problems without Authentication Header

(Metehan Selvi) #1

as stated in Logstash with x-pack authentication problems
I have the same problems after I have updated ELK-Stack with x-pack.

[2017-09-07T08:44:37,664][ERROR][logstash.outputs.elasticsearch] Got a bad response code from server, but this code is not considered retryable. Request will be dropped {:code=>401, :response_body=>"{\"error\":{\"root_cause\":[{\"type\":\"security_exception\",\"reason\":\"missing authentication token for REST request [/_bulk]\",\"header\":{\"WWW-Authenticate\":\"Basic realm=\\\"security\\\" charset=\\\"UTF-8\\\"\"}}],\"type\":\"security_exception\",\"reason\":\"missing authentication token for REST request [/_bulk]\",\"header\":{\"WWW-Authenticate\":\"Basic realm=\\\"security\\\" charset=\\\"UTF-8\\\"\"}},\"status\":401}"}

Logstash does not include BASIC Authorisations Headers.
I tried to tcpdump the communication and it is true:

POST /_bulk HTTP/1.1
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Type: application/json
Content-Length: 94879 
Host: localhost:9200
User-Agent: Manticore 0.6.1
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate

. ....

HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="security" charset="UTF-8"
content-type: application/json; charset=UTF-8
content-encoding: gzip
transfer-encoding: chunked


I tried the official docu and created roles and users, add the
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.username: "elastic"
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.password: "changeme"

in the logstash.yml file etc.

Also a basic curl works

 curl -v -u elastic:changeme http://localhost:9200

Is it a bug??????

What does your Logstash configuration look like?

Thank you for the quick reply.
Yes, I found the mistake.
THANK YOU very Much!!

In the logstash.yml I had a reference to

  path.config: /etc/logstash/conf.d 

which inside there was beats.conf file where I have not noticed that there also must be
the user and password inserted. Current output is:

output {
   if [@metadata][beat] {
     elasticsearch {
         hosts => ["http://localhost:9200"]
         index => "%{[@metadata][beat]}-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
        document_type => "%{[@metadata][type]}"
        user => "elastic"
        password => "changeme"
     else {
         elasticsearch {
               hosts => [ "" ]
               user => "elastic"
               password => "changeme"

But why do I register the user both on beats.conf and the logstash,yml ?

The entry in logstash.yml specifies where Logstash will send monitoring data. Configuration in the config determines where data go.
