Problem with Fluent Bit Annotations

Hi,
I’m trying to use Fluent Bit Kubernetes annotation to customize log parsing but it seems that annotation on deployments are ignored.

Following my fluent-bit.conf file:

apiVersion: v1
kind: ConfigMap
metadata:
  name: fluent-bit-config
  namespace: kube-logging
  labels:
    k8s-app: fluent-bit
data:

Now I have a Kubernetes deployment with this annotations:

apiVersion: apps/v1
kind: Deployment
metadata:
  labels:
    app: student-service
  name: student-service
spec:
  replicas: 1
  selector:
    matchLabels:
      app: student-service
  strategy: { }
  template:
    metadata:
      annotations:
        fluentbit.io/parser: application
      labels:
        app: student-service
....

I expect that files produced by student-service are parsed with ‘application’ parser, but docker parser is used.

Anybody can help me?

Thanks
Damy
