Filebeat : Exiting: No outputs are defined. Please define one under the output section

Hello All,
I am trying to send logs data from my local drive to logstash using filebeat 7.11.0.
I was able to do it successfully and also create index pattern in kibana.
I wanted to do some modification so I deleted my index pattern and try to send data again into elasticsearch using Filebeat ==>Logstash==>Elasticsearch but its not working.
I gone through many articles but not able to solve my issue. (I deleted entire filebeat and created again and also deleted registery folder)
My filebeat.yml is:-

    ### Filebeat Configuration Example###

This file is an example configuration file highlighting only the most common

options. The filebeat.reference.yml file from the same directory contains all the

supported options with more comments. You can use it as a reference.

You can find the full configuration reference here:

Filebeat Reference | Elastic

For more available modules and options, please see the filebeat.reference.yml sample

configuration file.

============= Filebeat inputs =============

filebeat.inputs:

Each - is an input. Most options can be set at the input level, so

you can use different inputs for various configurations.

Below are the input specific configurations.

  • type: log

    Change to true to enable this input configuration.

    enabled: true

    Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.

    paths:

    • "C:/ELK/intralogs/test/*.log"
      #- c:\programdata\elasticsearch\logs*

    Exclude lines. A list of regular expressions to match. It drops the lines that are

    matching any regular expression from the list.

    #exclude_lines: ['^DBG']

    Include lines. A list of regular expressions to match. It exports the lines that are

    matching any regular expression from the list.

    #include_lines: ['^ERR', '^WARN']

    Exclude files. A list of regular expressions to match. Filebeat drops the files that

    are matching any regular expression from the list. By default, no files are dropped.

    #exclude_files: ['.gz$']

    Optional additional fields. These fields can be freely picked

    to add additional information to the crawled log files for filtering

    #fields:

    level: debug

    review: 1

    Multiline options

    Multiline can be used for log messages spanning multiple lines. This is common

    for Java Stack Traces or C-Line Continuation

    The regexp Pattern that has to be matched. The example pattern matches all lines starting with [

    multiline.pattern: '^[0-9]{4}-[0-9]{2}-[0-9]{2}'

    Defines if the pattern set under pattern should be negated or not. Default is false.

    multiline.negate: true

    Match can be set to "after" or "before". It is used to define if lines should be append to a pattern

    that was (not) matched before or after or as long as a pattern is not matched based on negate.

    Note: After is the equivalent to previous and before is the equivalent to to next in Logstash

    multiline.match: after

filestream is an experimental input. It is going to replace log input in the future.

  • type: filestream

    Change to true to enable this input configuration.

    enabled: false

    Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.

    paths:

    • /var/log/*.log
      #- c:\programdata\elasticsearch\logs*

    Exclude lines. A list of regular expressions to match. It drops the lines that are

    matching any regular expression from the list.

    #exclude_lines: ['^DBG']

    Include lines. A list of regular expressions to match. It exports the lines that are

    matching any regular expression from the list.

    #include_lines: ['^ERR', '^WARN']

    Exclude files. A list of regular expressions to match. Filebeat drops the files that

    are matching any regular expression from the list. By default, no files are dropped.

    #prospector.scanner.exclude_files: ['.gz$']

    Optional additional fields. These fields can be freely picked

    to add additional information to the crawled log files for filtering

    #fields:

    level: debug

============================== Filebeat modules ==============================

filebeat.config.modules:

Glob pattern for configuration loading

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

Set to true to enable config reloading

reload.enabled: false

Period on which files under path should be checked for changes

#reload.period: 10s

== Elasticsearch template setting ===

setup.template.settings:
index.number_of_shards: 1
#index.codec: best_compression
#_source.enabled: false

============= General =================

The name of the shipper that publishes the network data. It can be used to group

all the transactions sent by a single shipper in the web interface.

#name:

The tags of the shipper are included in their own field with each

transaction published.

#tags: ["service-X", "web-tier"]

================================= Dashboards =================================

The URL from where to download the dashboards archive. By default this URL

has a value which is computed based on the Beat name and version. For released

versions, this URL points to the dashboard archive on the artifacts.elastic.co

website.

#setup.dashboards.url:

=============================== Elastic Cloud ================================

These settings simplify using Filebeat with the Elastic Cloud (https://cloud.elastic.co/).

The cloud.id setting overwrites the output.elasticsearch.hosts and

setup.kibana.host options.

You can find the cloud.id in the Elastic Cloud web UI.

#cloud.id:

The cloud.auth setting overwrites the output.elasticsearch.username and

output.elasticsearch.password settings. The format is <user>:<pass>.

#cloud.auth:

================================== Outputs ===================================

Configure what output to use when sending the data collected by the beat.

---------------------------- Elasticsearch Output ----------------------------

#output.elasticsearch:

Array of hosts to connect to.

#hosts: ["localhost:9200"]

Protocol - either http (default) or https.

#protocol: "https"

Authentication credentials - either API key or username/password.

#api_key: "id:api_key"
#username: "elastic"
#password: "changeme"

------------------------------ Logstash Output -------------------------------

output.logstash:

The Logstash hosts

hosts: ["localhost:5044"]

Optional SSL. By default is off.

List of root certificates for HTTPS server verifications

#ssl.certificate_authorities: ["/etc/pki/root/ca.pem"]

Certificate for SSL client authentication

#ssl.certificate: "/etc/pki/client/cert.pem"

Client Certificate Key

#ssl.key: "/etc/pki/client/cert.key"

================================= Processors =================================

processors:

  • add_host_metadata:
    when.not.contains.tags: forwarded
  • add_cloud_metadata: ~
  • add_docker_metadata: ~
  • add_kubernetes_metadata: ~

================================== Logging ===================================

Sets log level. The default log level is info.

Available log levels are: error, warning, info, debug

#logging.level: debug

At debug level, you can selectively enable logging only for some components.

To enable all selectors use ["*"]. Examples of other selectors are "beat",

"publisher", "service".

#logging.selectors: ["*"]

============================= X-Pack Monitoring ==============================

Filebeat can export internal metrics to a central Elasticsearch monitoring

cluster. This requires xpack monitoring to be enabled in Elasticsearch. The

reporting is disabled by default.

Set to true to enable the monitoring reporter.

#monitoring.enabled: false

Sets the UUID of the Elasticsearch cluster under which monitoring data for this

Filebeat instance will appear in the Stack Monitoring UI. If output.elasticsearch

is enabled, the UUID is derived from the Elasticsearch cluster referenced by output.elasticsearch.

#monitoring.cluster_uuid:

Uncomment to send the metrics to Elasticsearch. Most settings from the

Elasticsearch output are accepted here as well.

Note that the settings should point to your Elasticsearch monitoring cluster.

Any setting that is not set is automatically inherited from the Elasticsearch

output configuration, so if you have the Elasticsearch output configured such

that it is pointing to your Elasticsearch monitoring cluster, you can simply

uncomment the following line.

#monitoring.elasticsearch:

============================== Instrumentation ===============================

Instrumentation support for the filebeat.

#instrumentation:
# Set to true to enable instrumentation of filebeat.
#enabled: false

# Environment in which filebeat is running on (eg: staging, production, etc.)
#environment: ""

# APM Server hosts to report instrumentation results to.
#hosts:
#  - http://localhost:8200

# API Key for the APM Server(s).
# If api_key is set then secret_token will be ignored.
#api_key:

# Secret token for the APM Server(s).
#secret_token:

================================= Migration ==================================

This allows to enable 6.7 migration aliases

#migration.6_to_7.enabled: true

My logstash.conf looks like below :-

input {

beats{
type => "test"
port=> "5044"
}
}
output {
elasticsearch {
hosts => "http://localhost:9200"
index => "plwlogbeat"
}
stdout { codec => rubydebug }
}

and the error I am getting is :-
