Filebeat ssl issue


I ran into a weird issue where I was getting the following error on one of my logstash servers as I was trying to set up filebeats:

ERROR [esclientleg] transport/logging.go:37 Error dialing x509: Certificate signed by unknown authority  {"network": "tcp", "address": "<hostname:443>"

By adding the following syntax I was able to solve the problem, but now I have slightly different configs and I am not sure why:

output.elasticsearch.ssl.certificate_authorities: ["path to CA file"]

What has me confused is that I have metricbeat running on the same host without having to add that syntax. I also copied these configs directly from another host that is working without having to add that syntax as well.

Thanks for any thoughts,
