Filebeat output.logstash indicex & kibana index pattern for dashboard visualize

I'm using filebeat to collect some of the data:

# rpm -q filebeat

per filebeat.yml there are two outputs:

# egrep 'output\..**\:$' /etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml.rpmnew 

unfortunately, direct access to elasticsearch isn't available and as alternative logstash is my only choice.

My question, since logstash writes data into logstash-* indices and yet filebeat's Dashboards and/or Visualizes reads from metricbeat-*, how shall I deal with this?

Please advise.

You can configure the index Logstash should write to. See

Thanks a lot! That is exactly what I was looking for)
