Redirecting postgresql tables to Elasticsearch

I am trying to redirect my postgresql tables to elasticsearch using JDBC and Logstash. I was able to do it but i came across a problem of ingesting the same data over and over again. I know i need to use tracking column but i think i have a problem with timestamp format.

This is my conf file:

input {
    jdbc {
     clean_run => true
        jdbc_driver_library => "/tmp/postgresql-42.6.0.jar"
        jdbc_driver_class => "org.postgresql.Driver"
        jdbc_connection_string => "jdbc:postgresql://postgres:5432/template1"
        jdbc_user => "postgres"
        jdbc_password => "******"
        statement => "SELECT * FROM public.users WHERE last_update > :sql_last_value AND last_update < CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ORDER BY last_update ASC"
        use_column_value => true
        tracking_column_type => "timestamp"
        tracking_column => "last_update"
        last_run_metadata_path => "/tmp/last.yml"
        #schedule => "* * * * *"
filter {
    mutate {
    elasticsearch {
        hosts => ["******""]
        index => "sql_idx"
        user => "elastic"
        password => "******"
        ssl => true
        ssl_certificate_verification => false

But the problem is, logstash log still gives me:

WHERE last_update > '1970-01-01 00:00:00.000000+0000'

The out.yml file keeps the correct record:

2023-10-20 12:10:06.789306000 Z

But it seems like :sql_last_value does not ingest it correctly. Can anyone help me with this? Thank you in advance.

Hi @krzychohoho,

This might not fix your problem, but you probably don't need the "AND clause" with the current timestamp. Try the following please:

"SELECT * FROM public.users WHERE last_update > :sql_last_value ORDER BY last_update ASC"
