Hi@akhtar,

You can use the file plugin to connect your log file in Logstash. In your Logstash configuration file, you have to tell your file name. I have attached the configuration code below.

input {
 file {
 path => '/root/logstash-7.7.1/bin/file.txt'
 }
}
output {
 file {
 path => 'output.txt'
 codec => rubydebug
  }
}

Hope this will help you.
