How to Add Filebeat Output Configuration via Node Attribute

Filebeat output configuration can be added to attribute node['filebeat']['config'].

  "default_attributes": {
    "filebeat": {
      "config": {
        "output.elasticsearch": {
          "enable": true,
          "hosts": "127.0.0.1:9200"
        },
        "output.redis": {
          "enable": true,
          "option ..": "value .."
        },
        "{output.redis|output.elasticsearch|output.kafka|output.file|output.console|output.logstash| ..}": {
          "option ..": "value ..",
        }
      }
    }
  }

Above filebeat output configuration will be added to filebeat.yml file.

How to Add Filebeat Prospectors via Node Attribute

Individual prospector configuration file can also be added using attribute default['filebeat']['prospectors']. Each prospector configuration will be created using LWRP. For more prospector options, check out LWRP filebeat_prospector

  "default_attributes": {
    "filebeat": {
      "prospectors": {

        "system_logs": {
          "paths": [
            "/var/log/messages",
            "/var/log/syslog"
          ],
          "type": "log",
          "fields": {
            "type": "system_logs"
          },
          "option ...": "value ..."
        },

        "apache_logs": {
          "paths": [
            "/var/log/apache/*.log"
          ],
          "type": "log",
          "ignore_older": "24h",
          "scan_frequency": "15s",
          "harvester_buffer_size": 16384,
          "fields": {
            "type": "apache_logs"
          },
          "option ...": "value ..."
        },

        "prospector ...": {
          "option ...": "value ..."
        }

      }
    }
  }

Above configuration will create three different prospector files - lwrp-prospector-system_logs.yml, lwrp-prospector-secure_logs.yml and lwrp-prospector-apache_logs.yml under node['filebeat']['prospectors_dir'].
