Detailsedit

 

add_fieldedit

  • Value type is hash
  • Default value is {}

Add a field to an event

codecedit

  • Value type is codec
  • Default value is "plain"

The codec used for input data. Input codecs are a convenient method for decoding your data before it enters the input, without needing a separate filter in your Logstash pipeline.

environmentedit

  • Value type is string
  • Default value is "production"

hostedit

  • Value type is string
  • Default value is "0.0.0.0"

intervaledit

  • Value type is number
  • Default value is 600

portedit

  • Value type is number
  • Default value is 8140

private_keyedit

  • Value type is path
  • There is no default value for this setting.

public_keyedit

  • Value type is path
  • There is no default value for this setting.

ssledit

  • Value type is boolean
  • Default value is true

tagsedit

  • Value type is array
  • There is no default value for this setting.

Add any number of arbitrary tags to your event.

This can help with processing later.

typeedit

  • Value type is string
  • There is no default value for this setting.

Add a type field to all events handled by this input.

Types are used mainly for filter activation.

The type is stored as part of the event itself, so you can also use the type to search for it in Kibana.

If you try to set a type on an event that already has one (for example when you send an event from a shipper to an indexer) then a new input will not override the existing type. A type set at the shipper stays with that event for its life even when sent to another Logstash server.
