As discussed in my last post, one of my current assignments at work is to build a new ELK stack to provide logfile aggregation for a new group of servers that will be going online soon. (If you haven’t read that post, I would suggest reading it first.) Just as I created my javiergayala.kibana Ansible role for the project, I also created the javiergayala.filebeat Ansible role.

I was able to create and publish the role using the knowledge that I had gained publishing the javiergayala.kibana Ansible role. I hope that others find it useful. If you encounter any problems, feel free to open an issue on GitHub.
