The docs say there should be backwards compatibility, but I get the following:
Error: The multiline filter has been replaced by the multiline codec. Please see http://logstash.net/docs/1.2.0/codecs/multiline.
Ultimately, the issue I'm trying to get around is:
My redis input has different events, some of which need multiline joining. When I apply that multilne codec, I lose all the json structuring and grok matching from my shipper. Is there some way to apply both, or one conditionally?
Agreed! I accidentally merged a change in that disabled the multiline filter; I'm fixing it for logstash 1.2.1 which should be released in a day or two.
