Unable to parse JSON logs in Graylog

(Blason) #1

Hi Guys,

I am writing my logs in json file and and input filter is json directly but those are being parsed correctly in elasticsearch? Any clue what I am missing here?

Here is my json file

{"org_name": "google.com", "policy_spf": "pass", "org_email": "noreply-dmarc-support@google.com", "policy_dkim": "pass", "policy_pct": "100", "auth_spf_result": "pass","auth_dkim_domain": "xxx,ccc", "auth_dkim_result": "pass", "identifier_header_from": "xxx,ccc", "date_end": "2019-01-04T05:29:59", "date_start": "2019-01-03T05:30:00", "source_ip": "1,.2.3.4", "count": 1, "auth_spf_domain": "xxx,ccc", "policy_p": "none", "submitter": "unknown", "policy_disposition": "none", "policy_domain": "xxx,ccc", "id": "15325652754200102860"}

{“org_name”: “google.com”, “policy_spf”: “fail”, “org_email”: "noreply-dmarc-support@google.com", “policy_dkim”: “fail”, “policy_pct”: “100”, “auth_spf_result”: “pass”, “identifier_header_from”: “mail.xxx,ccc”, “date_end”: “2019-01-04T05:29:59”, “date_start”: “2019-01-03T05:30:00”, “source_ip”: “”, “count”: 1, “auth_spf_domain”: “apc01-hk2-obe.outbound.protection.outlook.com”, “policy_p”: “none”, “submitter”: “unknown”, “policy_disposition”: “none”, “policy_domain”: “xxx,ccc”, “id”: “15325652754200102860”}
{“org_name”: “google.com”, “policy_spf”: “pass”, “org_email”: "noreply-dmarc-support@google.com", “policy_dkim”: “pass”, “policy_pct”: “100”, “auth_spf_result”: “pass”, “auth_dkim_domain”: “xxx,ccc”, “auth_dkim_result”: “pass”, “identifier_header_from”: “xxx,ccc”, “date_end”: “2019-01-04T05:29:59”, “date_start”: “2019-01-03T05:30:00”, “source_ip”: “”, “count”: 1, “auth_spf_domain”: “xxx,ccc”, “policy_p”: “none”, “submitter”: “unknown”, “policy_disposition”: “none”, “policy_domain”: “xxx,ccc”, “id”: “15325652754200102860”}

And here is my logstash config file which is not parsing the JSON logs correctly. Can someone confirm what is the issue?

input {
file {
type => “json”
path => “/log/*.json”
start_position => “beginning”

filter {
  if [source_type] == "json-logs" {
    json {
      source => "message"
      tag_on_failure => ["_jsonparsefailure"]

output {
gelf {
host => “localhost”
port => “12202”
protocol => “UDP”

Wondering if do I need write GROK pattern for my JSON logs? Since those are JSOn should get parsed automatically right?

(Ben van Staveren) #3

It doesn’t get parsed automatically - you either need to put a JSON extractor on the input, or use a pipeline to parse the JSON for you.

(Blason) #4

Oh I was assuming it gets parsed automatically since its an JSON format. ELK does that hence thought it can be applied here as well.

So what exactly I need to do? To get those messages parsed? Apply JSON extractor.

Not sure or not very well versed with Pipeline yet hence looking for better & quicker option.

(Blason) #5

Yes after applying it worked. How do I make that automatic? Since enabling the extractor means I’ll have to wait for message to arrive then apply the extractor.

(Ben van Staveren) #6

Uh, it is automatic. Once you’ve set up an extractor on an input, every message that comes in is processed by the extractor.

Within certain limits, which you can define yourself…

(Ben van Staveren) #8

Yeah, that… forgot to mention that :smiley:

That has resolved the issue. Thanks for the help.
