Filebeat 7.5.1 Missing a step for custom index names config?

I have the following set it my filebeat.yml config file, which should allow me to see dev-* index in kibana. However these are still showing as filebeat-*. Is there something Im missing based on the docs and the reference file on install I should have everything set correctly.

  - type: log
    enabled: true
      - /var/log/*.log

  path: ${path.config}/modules.d/*.yml
  reload.enabled: false

  hosts: ["my_es_host_ip:9200"]
  index: "dev-%{[agent.version]}-%{+yyyy.MM.dd}"

setup.template.enabled: true "dev-%{[agent.version]}"
setup.template.pattern: "dev-%{[agent.version]}-*"


Yes, this is unfortunately not obvious in our docs (see :disappointed:. You will need to add an extra setting:

setup.ilm.enabled: false

By default this setting is set to true and in that case the default index template and index names stay in effect.
