Elasticsearch template in logstash does not load?

I have template which is in fact copy&paste of my current auto mappings with two field types change to geo_point but when I try to load it, actual mappings do not change ?

output {
if [type] =="pa-traffic" {
elasticsearch {
##protocol =>"node"
hosts => "elasticsearch:9200"
index =>"pa-traffic-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
#cluster => elastic-cluster-neteng-syslog
template => "/opt/elasticsearch-template.json"
template_overwrite => true
#stdout { codec => rubydebug }


$ head /opt/elasticsearch-template.json
"template": "pa-*",
"settings" : {
"index.refresh_interval" : "5s"
"mappings": {
"pa-traffic": {
"properties": {

I found this in logs, line: 6, column: 2 is just '{' before "mappings"

[2016-11-09T21:25:36,606][ERROR][logstash.outputs.elasticsearch] Failed to install template. {:message=>"Unexpected character ('{' (code 123)): was expecting double-quote to start field name\n at [Source: [B@22c6094b; line: 6, column: 2]", :class=>"LogStash::Json::ParserError"}

It's hard to help unless we can see the mapping you are using :slight_smile:
