Logz.io Codec

When configuring your log shipper, you may be required to choose a logzio_codec (most of the Beat family and other shippers). Keep in mind that there is a difference when configuring a prospector that harvests JSON files vs a prospector that harvests simple text lines logs. The two options to the fields objects are:

  1. plain - whenever shipping your logs as text line files 
  2. json - whenever shipping your logs as JSON files
