    How to enable debug logging for the SecureAuth Filebeat service.



    To assist in troubleshooting Filebeat issues the configuration can be changed to enable debug logging.



    1. Stop the SecureAuth Filebeat service in the services.msc console.

    2. Uncomment the line starting logging.level: debug (highlighted below) in the Filebeat configuration file located here:

    C:\Program Files\SecureAuth Corporation\FileBeat\filebeat.yml

    Note, when removing the "#" character, do not leave a leading space character on the line as it will prevent the Filebeat service from starting.

    3. Start the Filebeat service.
