New to filebeat, trying to get an index up and running in elasticsearch.
I followed this guide: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/filebeat-installation-configuration.html but for some reason even after I run
filebeat setup -e and start the Filebeat service there is no Filebeat index created in elasticsearch.
This is all on my local machine, filebeat.yml looks like the following:
filebeat.inputs: - type: log paths: - C:/elk/logs/filebeatlog.log output.elasticsearch: hosts: ["localhost:9200"]
Everything else is default.
in the log that I'm inputting there's only one line right now, something like
2020-09-14 13:19:35,067 INFO com.class.java.blahblah.blah [main] Text Text text
Didn't do any parsing on it or anything yet, is that my problem? Or is there certain priviledges I have to give filebeat like stated in this article: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/master/privileges-to-publish-events.html ?
I'm really lost, I've had other indices created in ElasticSearch before from Logstash so I'm not sure if its an ES problem or not.
Any help is appreciated, I am a real newbie to all this stuff. Thanks.
