I have an instance setup in Beats central management that has a filebeat input from a specific filepath, i need to know how to output this data.
I am assuming you need to create a output configuration block so i've done that with the output type set to 'elasticsearch'. The next field is 'host' what am i suppose to populate this field with? Ive tried the cloud Id and that does not work.
Since i am using the Cloud i dont have a local host over port 9200.
Do i need to specify the cloud ID and a specific Index?
Any help on how to successfully input and output data using the configuration blocks would be much appreciated. i have no found any useful articles online as of yet.
