Unable to reroute logs emitted from logstash

Hi, I am stuck trying to reroute the path of logs coming from logstash.

In logstash.yml that is in etc/logstash I configured to send logs to ~/logstash as a test:

# ------------ Debugging Settings --------------
# Options for log.level:
#   * fatal
#   * error
#   * warn
#   * info (default)
#   * debug
#   * trace
# log.level: info
path.logs: ~/logstash

but this didnt work.

I am stuck on the logstash logs for a while :frowning: any one that can help will be welcome :slight_smile:

I wouldn't expect ~ to be expanded in this context, plus which user context are we talking about here? Try using an absolute path, and make sure that path is writable by the Logstash user.

Thanks for the answer!

You are right and this was a silly mistake, also when I tested in different places I really forgot to check if it writable!

Thanks again!
