winlogbeat integration

Coralogix provides a seamless integration with Winlogbeat to help you send your Windows event viewer logs directly to Coralogix and parse them according to your needs.



Private Key – A unique ID which represents your company, this Id will be sent to your mail once you register to Coralogix.

Company Id – A unique number which represents your company. You can get your company id from the settings tab in the Coralogix dashboard.

Application Name – The name of your main application, for example, a company named “SuperData” would probably insert the “SuperData” string parameter or if they want to debug their test environment they might insert the “SuperData– Test”.

SubSystem Name – Your application probably has multiple subsystems, for example, Backend servers, Middleware, Frontend servers etc. in order to help you examine the data you need, inserting the subsystem parameter is vital.


Open your Winlogbeat configuration file and configure it to use Logstash. For more information about configuring Filebeat to use Logstash please refer to

Point your Winlogbeat to output to Coralogix Logstash server:

In addition, you should add Coralogix configuration from the General section.

Here is a basic example of winlogbeat.yml:
