Can't load installed filter plugin

Hi all, I found logstash-filter-jwt-decode plugin to decode jwt tokens, but I am not able to load it despite successfull installation.

Below is what i've done.

bash-4.2$ logstash-plugin install logstash-filter-jwt-decode
Validating logstash-filter-jwt-decode
Installing logstash-filter-jwt-decode
Installation successful

bash-4.2$ logstash-plugin list | grep jwt

bash-4.2$ grep jwt /usr/share/logstash/Gemfile
gem "logstash-filter-jwt-decode"

bash-4.2$ grep config_name /usr/share/logstash/vendor/bundle/jruby/2.5.0/gems/logstash-filter-jwt-decode-0.2.0/
logstash-filter-jwt-decode-0.2.0/lib/logstash/filters/jwt-decode.rb:21:  config_name "jwt-decode"

bash-4.2$ cat /usr/share/logstash/pipeline/logstash.conf
input {
  beats {
    port => 5044

 filter {
  jwt-decode {
    "match" => "http.request.headers.x-token"
    "signature_alg" => "HS512"
    "extract_fields" => {"jwt.login" => "http.request.jwt.login"}

output {
  stdout { codec => rubydebug { metadata => true } }

bash-4.2$ logstash -t

Documentation is not very expansive, so I've checked plugin name into ruby file, I tried too with short documetation examples (jwt-decode) with no success...

Any idea what's wrong with this ?
