In perspective of security I like the principle of not exposing elastic-notes directly to data sources or end users. I therefore see it as relevant to use Logstash as a relay for data which should not be filtered/manipulated before they are shipped towards ES-nodes. Is this common or is this not adviced?
In my case i have some scripts who successfully push json directly to an es-node (http://nodeip:9200). So now I want to set up logstash to receive these and ship them over to the es-node.
I did some searching and didnt manage to find any example of such usage.
What input- and output-plugin should I use?
