Override Endpoint or deactivate Logging on Dev/Stage Servers

If you want to override the endpoint URL set by the module configuration you can add to your config.php or config-dev.php following:

  • $config->processLogstash = [ "endpoint" => "http://localhost:9600" ]

If you want to deactivate the logging you can set this also to false:

  • $config->processLogstash = [ "endpoint" => false ]

If you want to add information about your server environment you can add following to the config.php:

  • $config->processLogstash = [ "env" => "stage" ]

This will be added as "env" to your log messages.

Add custom HTTP Header to the Request

Some Logstash cloud providers like need an API Key in the HTTP Headers. You can add it with this way in the config.php

  • $config->processLogstash = [ "customHttpHeaders" => [ "ApiKey: YOUR-API_KEY" ] ]

Request to Logstash throw a proxy server

If you have your Server behind a proxy, you can add to your config.php file following properties:

  • $config->processLogstash['proxy'] = "";

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
