You are sending to logstash not to elasticsearch directly. As such you cannot have the index settings configured.

The problem is solved. Thanks anyways

I would love to know how to solve your problem, I removed the index configuration by
#setup.template.settings:
#index.number_of_shards: 1
#index.codec: best_compression
#_source.enabled: false
but my problem is not solved, looking forward to your help. thanks.
