Question about automatic config reload


If I start logstash with -r config, it will reload its configuration.

I know it works well if I change the conf files directly.
But will it also trigger a reload if I make changes to a referenced grok pattern file or a referenced ruby script file?

Thanks, Andreas

No, only the file itself. This is a great point however, we should probably make this work. Mind filing an issue to ask for this as an enhancement?

Reloading the Config File | Logstash Reference [8.11] | Elastic does mention this;

Changes to grok pattern files are also reloaded, but only when a change in the config file triggers a reload (or the pipeline is restarted).
