Testing filebeat

I'd like to know how to test a filebeat configuration. I have filebeat installed locally, so I can do filebeat test config -c $MY_FILE. That is good to test if the configuration is semantically correct.
However, I'd like to test that the configuration rules are as I want. Something like:

filebeat test match -c $MY_FILE -i FILE_TO_TEST and output could be all lines that have passed, for example.
Alternatively, something like:
filebeat test match -c $MY_FILE -i FILE_TO_TEST -i $MY_STRING


You could probably do something with filebeat stdin input, but you would need to develop it as the command doesn't have this feature.
