Failed to execute action - logstash

Hi,

I'm trying to send logs from AWS Kinesis firehose to elasticsearch through logstash. My ".conf" file look like following:

input {
        kinesis {
                kinesis_stream_name => "GuardDutyFindings-Delivery"
                region => "us-east-1"
                profile => "default"
                codec => json
         }
}
output {
        elasticsearch {
                hosts => "X.X.X.X:9200"
                index => "sample-guardduty-index"
                             }
           }

But, when I run "bin/logstash -e /etc/logstash/conf.d/test.conf --path.settings /etc/logstash" Following error is thrown:

[> 2018-12-10T16:30:17,624][ERROR][logstash.agent ] Failed to execute action {:action=>LogStash::PipelineAction::Create/pipeline_id:main, :exception=>"LogStash::ConfigurationError", :message=>"Expected one of #, input, filter, output at line 3, column 1 (byte 76) after ", :backtrace=>["/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/compiler.rb:42:in compile_imperative'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/compiler.rb:50:incompile_graph'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/compiler.rb:12:in block in compile_sources'", "org/jruby/RubyArray.java:2486:inmap'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/compiler.rb:11:in compile_sources'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/pipeline.rb:51:ininitialize'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/pipeline.rb:169:in initialize'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/pipeline_action/create.rb:40:inexecute'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/agent.rb:315:in block in converge_state'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/agent.rb:141:inwith_pipelines'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/agent.rb:312:in block in converge_state'", "org/jruby/RubyArray.java:1734:ineach'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/agent.rb:299:in converge_state'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/agent.rb:166:inblock in converge_state_and_update'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/agent.rb:141:in with_pipelines'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/agent.rb:164:inconverge_state_and_update'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/agent.rb:90:in execute'", "/usr/share/logstash/logstash-core/lib/logstash/runner.rb:348:inblock in execute'", "/usr/share/logstash/vendor/bundle/jruby/2.3.0/gems/stud-0.0.23/lib/stud/task.rb:24:in `block in initialize'"]}

when I run when I run "bin/logstash -f /etc/logstash/conf.d/test.conf --path.settings /etc/logstash" , it is throwing following error:

SEVERE: Unable to initialize after 20 attempts. Shutting down.
java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: profile file cannot be null

Can you let me know what is my mistake?

My bad. I have to use "-f" parameter instead of "-e" when I assign path to ".conf" file.
