Fortinet message field not being parsed correctly

I've been trying to get this working for the past 3 weeks, and have read literally every forum post, reddit post, etc., on this. I'm spinning my wheels and can't figure out what is going wrong.

I've tried using Filebeats-->ES with the Fortinet plugin, and Filebeats-->Logstash-->ES, and both result in the same thing. I see data, but the 'message' field isn't parsed, so I can't visualize anything worthwhile.

Here is my Fortinet syslog setup:

config log syslogd2 setting
    set status enable
    set server ""
    set mode reliable
    set port 5513
    set facility local7
    set source-ip
    set format default
    set priority default
    set max-log-rate 0
    set enc-algorithm disable
    set interface-select-method auto

config log syslogd2 filter
    set severity information
    set forward-traffic enable
    set local-traffic enable
    set multicast-traffic enable
    set sniffer-traffic enable
    set anomaly enable
    set voip enable
    set filter ''
    set filter-type include

Filebeat Config (going to ES)

  # Array of hosts to connect to.
  hosts: ["localhost:9200"]

Filebeat Config (when going to Logstash):

  # The Logstash hosts
  hosts: ["localhost:5522"]

Logstash Config:

input {
  beats {
    port => 5522

output {
  elasticsearch {
    pipeline => "%{[@metadata][pipeline]}"
    hosts => ["localhost:9200"]
    index => "fortios-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"

Pipelines were injected just fine:

Fields are populating, but 'messages' isn't parsed out:

Also, probably unrelated, but even the fields/message data is just showing information for one machine - the syslog/ELK server. Based on my config, I'd imagine that ALL logs from all traffic/machines should be being sent. It's just data for this one machine - not sure why. Message field still not parsed, but there should be a LOT more data flowing through too.

Not sure what I'm missing. Any suggestions/ideas? I'm completely lost.
