Collector configuration of winlogbeat snippets were not working in graylog

(Ganeshbabu Ramamoorthy) #1

Hi All,

I have created new configuration in graylog and in which I configured winlobeat in input & output and also I tried creating snippet for winlogbeat to allow only specific event id’s for “security” log name.
Below is the syntax I used from this URL,

  - name: Security
    event_id: 4624, 4625, 4700-4800, -4735

When I started the collector sidecar the configuration changes were applied to the generated winlogbeat.yml and below are changes in the yml file,

Also I tried changing the syntax in snippet as given below,

  - name: Security
    event_id: 4670, 4688

After saved, the changes were reflected in generated winlogbeat.yml file,


Please kindly share your thoughts and correct me if I am doing anything wrong it would be helpful.

That kind of configuration is in the current Version of Collector Sidecar not supported.

Future Versions will have the ability for that, but current did not.

Your two options are:

  • configure winlogbeat without collector sidecar
  • collect all security settings and drop the unwanted in the processing rules
