Elastic Agent to Logstash (for enrichment) to Elasticsearchedit

Image showing Elastic Agent collecting data
Ingest models
  • Elastic Agent to Elasticsearch using Logstash to enrich the data
  • Elastic Agent to Logstash for enrichment based on fields in the Elastic Agent data to Elasticsearch
Use when
  • Data enrichment in Elasticsearch is not practical for business or technical reasons
  • Your use case requires data enrichment based on fields in the Elastic Agent data. Logstash can collect enrichment data based on those fields, and then send the data to Elasticsearch.
  • Data that changes frequently and is updated using an external source, such as stock ticker data
  • Enrichment data is proprietary and cannot be stored elsewhere.
  • Enrichment is done with an HTTP API whose return depends on values from the document.
    Example: An API that takes geo points with the collected data and returns available real estate in the region, and then passes to Logstash enrichment for enrichment between agents and Elasticsearch.
