Winlogbeat 6.0.0 Registry File


I noticed that in 6.0 the registry file in c:\ProgramData\winlogbeat.winlogbeat.yml isn't populating the same - am i missing something or is this intentional?

This is definitely a bug. Please open a new issue on Github for this.

The name should be set to e.Channel rather than e.API. This must have been introduced when we did a refactoring in 6.0 that allows Winlogbeat to be reading a batch and sending concurrently.

Thanks for the clarification. Also I noticed something that also may be related -

Whenever winlogbeat service is restarted the .winlogbeat.yml is reset and the logs are reset.

That sounds like symptom of the bug rather than a second issue.
