Read filebeat configration from Http URL?


(Sahadevan) #1

Team, Is there any way to read filebeat configuration from an URL?

I want to start filebeat in windows from command line like this

" filebeat.exe --path.config='http://XXXXXX/filebeat.yml' "

Please help me.

This is not possible. What is your end goal here? Are you trying to centralize your filebeat configuration?


(Sahadevan) #3

Yes. Basically, we want to have central location for all the config files so that we can change the config frequently and reload the filebeat instance.

@sahadevan Its currently not possible today, what we suggest is to take a look at Central Management Which allow you to store a configuration in ES and fetch it from the beats.
