Winlogbeat 8.6 process fields not populated


until now using winlogbeat 7.X, tried winlogbeat 8.6.1 but agent does not parse/populate process.XXX fields anymore, it only uses fields in winlog.event_data.XXX instead. Is there any easy obvious solution, instead of parsing this via logstash, to have populated both, winlog.event_data.Image and process.executable? (Maybe only process.XXX fields will be enough) Config is pretty basic, only processor is used to drop some events. Thanks.

  - name: Security

  - name: Microsoft-Windows-Sysmon/Operational

  - name: Windows PowerShell
    event_id: 400, 403, 600, 800

  - name: Microsoft-Windows-PowerShell/Operational
    event_id: 4103, 4104, 4105, 4106

PS: in winlogbeat 7. processors were used that probably did what i have in mind, in config referenced:

   - name: Security
    ignore_older: 72h
      - script:
          lang: javascript
          id: security
          file: ${path.home}/module/security/config/winlogbeat-security.js

but in 8 they are replaced by:


Much love,

You'll need to setup the provided ingest node pipelines in Elasticsearch. See Modules | Winlogbeat Reference [8.8] | Elastic
