Can you share your complete filebeat config? Please do not share screen shots, but actual text.

Looks like you don't have any module or input configured/enabled.

Here. I can post here. 7000 words limit.
I use hosted Elasticsearch Service. Should I enable any thing in config?

One more question. When should we use filebeat or metricbeat? Can you send me document when using hosted in elastic? I can't find filebeat in here:

Filebeat is used when you want to send any kind of logs on elasticserach.
Metricbeat is used to collect the metrics like system metrics, nginx metrics etc. Its used for monitoring the performance of your system and services.

Thanks. Can you take a look in my filebeat config? What should i do?_

If you're still looking for documentation resources, I recommend looking at the getting started guides in the Filebeat Reference and Metricbeat Reference.
