Multiline FIlebeat configuration for custom log

Hi , I have successfully set up real time centralized logging. The only issue that remains is the custom logs. It has mutiple lines for a single event. Since my shipper(filebeat) sends these logs to the buffer(Redis), I need to handle these multi line events in the filebeat end and not in the logstash end. Here is how the log lines look

and here is the filebeat.yml config:

exclude_lines: ["^*"]
multiline.pattern: "(\d{1,2})/(\d{1,2})/(\d{4})(\d{2}):(\d{2}):(\d{2})\s(AM|PM]\s:"
multiline.negate: true
multiline.match: after

I have tried several other patterns to let filebeat know that the date field is where I want the new event to start from. However, I get the entire event being made into a single line all the time.'Please help me out here

Using single quotes when writing regular expressions in your config file. Take a look at the tester where I modified your expression:
