Currently I have the following setup.
Syslog --> Logstash --> ElasticSearch --> Kibana
Logstash is creating a daily index "/etc/elasticsearch/data/test-elasticsearch/nodes/0/indices/logstash-2014.02.04" and I'm viewing all of the logs through Kibana. We want to set up some user based access control using the kibana-authentication-proxy setup due to it supporting Per-user kibana index supported. now you can use index kibana-int-userA for user A and kibana-int-userB for user B I'd like to make it where all logs coming in from logstash with a location of "/var/log/UNIX/*.log" get sent to a new index of unix-2014.02.04 instead of the logstash one. That way I can use the Kibana auth proxy to give my UNIX users access only to their logs. I've read a little about creating the mappings but wasn't sure how to tie it all together. I saw you could do various things with API calls but was curious if I could set all of this up in the elasticsearch.yml file from the start.
