Structuring Data


Course Summary

Data can come from many sources and in many formats, some of which might be difficult to read, but Elasticsearch can help with that. This course teaches you how to structure your unstructured data using Elasticsearch ingest nodes. You will learn how to parse unstructured event data in hybrid cases using split and kv processors as well as dissect and grok patterns. You will also learn how to handle and debug ingest errors along the way. After completing this course, you will be able to structure your observability data however you want, regardless of its initial format.
