Filebeat Configuration: How should be configured output.elasticsearch.index and setup.template

Here is a section from my filebeat.yml

I'm wondering how output.Elasticsearch.index and setup.template.pattern are related each other?
Would such a configuration like this lead any problems (or confusion when Discovering from Kibana UI ) or these two field should be set same?

My stack

  • Kibana 7.12.1
  • Elasticsearch 7.12.1
  • Filebeat 7.9.2
