Beats to create daily index

Auditbeat is configured to send data to Elasticsearch directly. I'm trying to get auditbeat to create a new index every day. Right now this is the index that beats uses: auditbeat-7.9.0-2020.08.24-000001, even though today is 2020.09.01.

For that, I've set up these lines in auditbeat.yml:

  index: "auditbeat-%{[agent.version]}-%{+yyyy.MM.dd}" "auditbeat"
  setup.template.pattern: "auditbeat-*"

But when I start auditbeat I get this:

Exiting: and setup.template.pattern have to be set if index name is modified

Does anyone know why I get this? As seen in my .yml file I have included these fields.

Thanks ahead!

I think is what you are looking for. You can add auditbeat-* into the list for action.auto_create_index setting.

I think this topic relates to your other ones on ILM, as Auditbeat is using ILM here.
