Uploading Json file to ES using LogStash


(Seung) #1

I have a very simple Json file:

{"ABC":"123","DEF":"456"}

I'm trying to upload that to Elastic Search using LogStash. My LogStash config file is:

input {
file {
start_position => "beginning"
path => "C:\Docs\Elastic_Search\simple_json.json"
codec => "json"
sincedb_path => "/dev/null"
type => "data"
}
}
output {
elasticsearch {
hosts => "localhost:9200"
index => "test_json"
document_type => "test_search_json"
}
stdout { codec => rubydebug }
}

However, when I start LogStash (logstash -f logstash-simple_json.conf --debug), the data does not get uploaded to Elastic Search.

I get the following:

Is there something wrong with my config file?
What is the easiest way to upload a Json file to Elastic Search using LogStash?

Thanks in advance!
