Event.created is always 8 hours later then @timestamp

Hi everyone,

I am facing a issue that the event.created is always 8 hours later than the @timestamp and the timestamp is the current time which is correct. Below is the example.

Time event.created event.timezone
Apr 15, 2021 @ 18:08:47.000 Apr 16, 2021 @ 02:08:47.000 +08:00

The environment I currently using is
Lab PA filewall -> Filebeat -> Logstash -> Elasticsearch.

And the modules I am using is panw.

May I know how can I correct the timezone problem?

Elasticsearch stores data as UTC.
Kibana shows data based on your browsers TZ.

Is there a difference between those?

I tried to change the timezone in Kibana setting. Then both Time and event.created shift according to the timezone.

Are u using a module or just an input? Normally this is caused by filebeat/elasticsearch parsing a time that's not utc and parsing as utc so it's off by whatever the TZ offset is. Or is the time/timezone different between the filebeat host and elasticsearch server?
