Logviewing - filebeat - Timestamp

Hello there,

I am exploring ELK capabilities for log viewing.

I understand how to ingest log data into elasticsearch through filebeat and viewing from Kibana. but I noticed that if I select timestamp while creating index, the time it shows is when the file was ingested.

but I want to be able to see the time which is in my log entries. I am not sure how.

Can anyone please tell me the right way to do it if they have done it before?

Thanks,
Akhil

Perhaps take a look at this

And this has tripped up a few folks

The layouts are described using a reference time that is based on this specific time:

Mon Jan 2 15:04:05 MST 2006

Since MST is GMT-0700, the reference time is:

01/02 03:04:05PM '06 -0700

Thanks Stephan. let me look into it.
