This section contains an overview of the Filebeat modules feature as well as details about each of the currently supported modules.

Filebeat modules require Elasticsearch 5.2 or later.

While Filebeat modules are still supported, we recommend Elastic Agent integrations over Filebeat modules. Integrations provide a streamlined way to connect data from a variety of vendors to the Elastic Stack. Refer to the full list of integrations. For more information, please refer to the Beats vs Elastic Agent comparison documentation.
