File input not sending to Elasticsearch

Hi I am just wondering if someone could look over these relevant portions of my Logstash config to see if there is an issue:

input {
  file {
    path => "/etc/elasticsearch/scripts/otherScripts/fortune.txt"
    codec => plain {
      format => "%{message}"
    sincedb_path => "/dev/null"
    start_position => "beginning"
    type => "fortune"


output {
        if [type]=="fortune" {
            elasticsearch {
            hosts => ["localhost:9200"]
            index => "linux-%{+yyyy.MM.dd}"
        stdout { codec => rubydebug }

Whenever I change the file and then check in the Kibana Discover linux-* pattern filtering for field type with value fortune nothing comes up. So can you help?
