Connect filebeat to elasticsearch

i've a filebeat-6.4.1-1 and try connect to ELK (elasticsearch-5.6 and kibana-5.6.12) but not connect and not index create in to Kibana. My filebeat.yml is:

- type: log
  enabled: true
    - /var/log/auth.log
  path: ${path.config}/modules.d/*.yml
  reload.enabled: false
  index.number_of_shards: 3
  host: 192.168.x.x:5601
  hosts: ["http://192.168.x.x:9200"] filebeat
  template.path: filebeat.template.json

And the filebeat message:

Hello @mcoa

Looking at the error in the log this look like a mapping error.

Mapping definition for [error] has unsupported parameters:

Looking at your configuration, you are providing a custom template with these options: filebeat
 template.path: filebeat.template.json

Unless you really need it I would remove the two options above and use the default templates that filebeat will manage for you.

Also, I see that you are parsing auth log did you take a look at the system module which will take care of parsing the auth log and creating dashboard for it?
