Filebeat setup error at kibana

Hi Everyone ,

I am trying to display filebeat* indices at kibana but the file beat setup is giving below error:-

error connecting to kibana: fail to get the kibana version: http get request to h "http://localhost:5601/api/status": eof. response: . exiting: error connecting to kibana: fail to get the kibana version

Below is my filebeat.yml (config ) for Elasticsearch & kibana

# =================================== Kibana ===================================

# Starting with Beats version 6.0.0, the dashboards are loaded via the Kibana API.
# This requires a Kibana endpoint configuration.
setup.kibana.host: "https://localhost:5601"

  # Kibana Host
  # Scheme and port can be left out and will be set to the default (http and 5601)
  # In case you specify and additional path, the scheme is required: http://localhost:5601/path
  # IPv6 addresses should always be defined as: https://[2001:db8::1]:5601
  #host: "localhost:5601"

  # Kibana Space ID
  # ID of the Kibana Space into which the dashboards should be loaded. By default,
  # the Default Space will be used.
  #space.id:


# ---------------------------- Elasticsearch Output ----------------------------
output.elasticsearch:
  # Array of hosts to connect to.
# hosts: ["x.y.z.p:9200"]

# output.elasticsearch:
# Array of hosts to connect to.
# hosts: ["https://x.y.z.p:9200"]

  #ssl.certificate: "/etc/elasticsearch/certs/elastic-stack-ca-non-prod.crt"
  #ssl.key: "/etc/elasticsearch/certs/elastic-stack-ca-non-prod.key"

  # Protocol - either `http` (default) or `https`.
  # protocol: "https"
  # Authentication credentials - either API key or username/password.
  api_key: "abc"
  # password: "****"

Any help please?

Note - I am running es 7.14 version on Linux ec2 machine (say host xyz ) however I am running kibana through docker container which is running on host xyz only

Also my filebeat 7.15 version is running on host xyz

I can see filebeat* indices which have created at Elasticsearch which is running on host xyz but kibana setup is giving error

Please advice on the above kibana beat setup error

thank you
