list.method

optional string literal enum
The method (rpop or lpop) to pop messages when data_type is list.
Enum options
OptionDescription
lpopPop messages from the head of the list.
rpopPop messages from the tail of the list.
default: lpop

redis_key

optional string literal
The log field name to use for the redis key. If set to an empty string or null, the key is not added to the log event.
Examples
"redis_key"

url

required string literal
The Redis URL to connect to. The url must take the form of protocol://server:port/db where the protocol can either be redis or rediss for connections secured via TLS.
Examples
"redis://127.0.0.1:6379/0"

How it works

Context

By default, the redis source augments events with helpful context keys.

redis-rs

The redis source uses redis-rs under the hood, which is a high level Redis library for Rust. It provides convenient access to all Redis functionality through a very flexible but low-level API.

State

This component is stateless, meaning its behavior is consistent across each input.
