Structuring and Processing Data into Elastic Search


Jan 30, 2020, 12:30 – 2:30 PM


About this event

Effectively indexing and structuring data into Elasticsearch is critical for establishing efficient search criteria and effective results. Logstash filters and ingest pipelines makes processing unstructured data easier by providing a set of common processors to efficiently parse, transform, and index that data into the desired structure.

In this session, Muhammad will explain concepts from the new Elastic Stack logging courses, including how to process and structure data using a variety of common filters and processors. Muhammad will demonstrate various solutions and built-in features that convert, enrich, process, and structure different types of fields from unstructured data. In addition, He will also show how to create your own pipeline of processors for transformations that are not possible using the prebuilt processors.

Learning Takeaway

• How a set of common ingest processors and Logstash filters to parse unstructured data into structured data

• Learning best practices for dissecting, converting, and enriching your fields

• Understanding of different scenarios that require either a built-in processor or a pipeline of processors to deal with certain types of unstructured data
