Read path from another config file in Logstash configuration file


(Ramya) #1

Hi

I have a requirement that ,in input section i have to read file path location from another config file ,so that i can change the file location dynamically from the config file instead of going into logstash config file and changing it every time.

Since i am new to EL i don't have any idea of achieving it , please help me

Sorry, that's not supported. You'll have to generate your configuration file or pass the input file path via an environment variable.
