Can we stop logstash from "Attempting to install template..."

I see this in my logstash log every time it starts up and it seems like an redundant and unnecessary step. Can I configure it to not do this?

[2020-05-13T09:51:10,669][INFO ][logstash.outputs.elasticsearch][main] Attempting to install template {:manage_template=>{"index_patterns"=>"logstash-*", "version"=>60001,...

Our use case is to launch logstash on demand each time it is needed from the command line. The install template step takes 2+ seconds and is not needed so we would like to turn that off somehow.

Have you tried setting the manage_template option of the elasticsearch output to false?

That worked perfectly. I don't know how I missed that in the docs.
