Remove input.type and prospector.type fields that appear in Kibana's hits


I'm using Filebeat to ingest some files into Logstash for data manipulation and thereafter indexed to Elasticsearch and displayed in Kibana. However I have fields such as input.type and prospector.type that has the "log" value appear in my Kibana hits which I do not want.

I've done some research and found out that they were generated as part of Filebeat. I've followed some of the solutions online, such as setting fields_under_root in filebeat.yml to false but to no avail. Anyone here able to help me with this? Thanks!

@dx123 I think what you're looking for is the drop_fields processor in beats.
