Constructing pipeline rules

I don’t have any idea on constructing pipeline rules, can any one help me to construct a rule to drop the log if it has EventID:4656 and the filed ProcessName has “C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe”.

Full Message:

A handle to an object was requested.

This will be a great help.

Thank you

Is there any reason you wouldn’t do this via the winlogbeat configuration instead of a pipeline? While possible with pipelines, it would be more efficient in my opinion to do it via the winlogbeat config so that the logs never even get passed from the host to graylog.

Hi Megan,

Thanks for the input, it really helped. I didn’t think that option initially. I am using nxlog to forward the logs to Graylog server and I configured it to drop the message content.
