Problem with Windows event log details


I am evaluating NXLog using the Community Edition. I created input as shown below to monitor certain Windows events and forward them via email. Everything is working as expected except that $Message or $raw_event variables always return word "true" instead of actual details about the event. Is this a limitation of the CE or am I doing something else wrong? Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

Problems sending Windows Eventlog to graylog

Hello everybody,

I'm sorry to bother you with another question concerning Windows Eventlog forwarding to graylog. Unfortunately I'm not able to figure this out on my own.

used versions:
nxlog 2.10.2102 (running on Windows Server 2016)
graylog 2.4.6 (running on Debian 9)

I have two nxlog setups. One using syslog and another one using GELF. Both do not work as I would expect.

1. Syslog

Order messages from Windows Event Log with nxlog-elasticsearch-Kibana


I'm using nxlog to send logs from Windows eventlog to elasticsearch, and using Kibana view.

I'm getting all the message as it is in the 'Message' column, I want to re-order it so the hostname parameter will be the windows server (and not the elasticsearch server), add 'Type' to the messages, etc.

this is the configuration file of nxlog:

* server

<Extension json>
 Module xm_json
