Elastic Common Schema (ECS)edit

The Elastic Common Schema (ECS) is an open source format that defines a common set of fields to be used when storing event data like logs in Elasticsearch.

You can use the library ecs-logging which is a set of libraries that enables you to transform your application logs to structured logs that comply with the ECS format.

Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:

gem 'ecs-logging'

Then execute bundle install. Or install from the command line yourself:

$ gem install ecs-logging

Then configure the client to use the logger:

require 'ecs_logging/logger'
require 'elasticsearch'

logger = EcsLogging::Logger.new($stdout)
client = Elasticsearch::Client.new(logger: logger)
> client.info
{"@timestamp":"2022-07-12T05:31:18.590Z","log.level":"INFO","message":"GET http://localhost:9200/ [status:200, request:0.009s, query:n/a]","ecs.version":"1.4.0"}...

See ECS Logging Ruby Reference for more information on how to configure the logger.
