You need to manually install Talend Log Server which includes Kibana and Filebeat to collect logs.


  1. Copy and extract the archive file in the directory of your choice.
    Note: The directory name must not contain spaces or non-ASCII characters.
  2. To start Talend Log Server launch the start_logserver.bat executable file.
    You cannot run Elasticsearch as the root user. Elasticsearch is part of the Talend Log Server, therefore you cannot run the executable file as root user.
  3. Configure the values for LOG_PATH and APP_NAME for Filebeat:
    • Open the filebeat.yml file located in the Filebeat directory and set the LOG_PATH and APP_NAME values as follows:
          - ${LOG_PATH:C:\Talend\7.2.1\tac\apache-tomcat\logs\*}
          app_id: ${APP_NAME:TAC}
    • Or, set the LOG_PATH and APP_NAME environment variables:
      SET LOG_PATH=c:\Talend\7.2.1\tac\apache-tomcat\logs\*
  4. Start Filebeat:
    filebeat -e -c filebeat.yml


You can now access Talend Log Server with the following URL: http://localhost:5601/app/kibana#/dashboard/Default-Dashboard.

Troubleshooting: When you start the Talend Log Server, if you do not see logstash-*, talendesb-*, and talendaudit-* indices, complete the following steps:
  1. Delete the .kibana index.
    curl -XDELETE 'http://localhost:9200/.kibana'

    For Windows users, use the curl found in utils\curl-7.50.3-windows-x86.exe

  2. Stop the Talend Log Server.
  3. Start the Talend Log Server.
