Certificate name: Name of the predefined certificate.
Private key path: Path on server where to find the private key to use in PEM format. Path can reference $ENV_VARS.
Passphrase: Passphrase to use to decrypt private key.
Certificate path: Server path at which to find certificates (in PEM format) to use. Path can reference
CA certificate path: Server path at which to find CA certificates (in PEM format) to use. Path can reference

In this section, you can add fields/metadata to each event using Eval-like functionality.
- Name: Field name.
In this section's Pipeline drop-down list, you can select a single existing Pipeline to process data from this input before the data is sent through the Routes.
Cribl LogStream uses a set of internal fields to assist in handling of data. These "meta" fields are not part of an event, but they are accessible, and functions can use them to make processing decisions.
Fields accessible for this Source:
If you set the optional
SizeInMBs parameters in the Kinesis Firehose
BufferingHints API, beware of selecting extreme values (toward the ends of the API's supported ranges). These can send more bytes than LogStream can buffer, causing LogStream to send HTTP 500 error responses to Kinesis Firehose.
