Is there data in ES?
Check with the _cat/indices request.

Then all you need to do it change the index pattern to the right one :slight_smile:

i dont have the create botton to create filebeat index pattern is there is any other way to do it ?

You need to literally change the logstash to filebeat and you should be ok.

If you follow this step from the Getting Started guide it will create the Kibana index pattern for you.

This is generally better than doing it yourself because the pattern setup by the tool has field formatters setup (like bytes get rendered as 1KB, percents as 99%, etc.). This may not affect Filebeat but definitely makes a difference with the other Beats.
