Negative.  In order to get Logstash/Kibana to identify fields, the grok 
patterns are what is used.  I guess that's the question for me....does 
Bro dump the data raw into elasticsearch?  If it does then I'll need to 
include a grok line in my logstash config to parse out the data of each 
type of log that bro generates.  I hope that makes sense..thanks Seth.
