Getting "Encountered a retryable error. Will Retry with exponential backoff {:code=>403, :url=>"http://127.0.0.1:8800/_bulk"}"

I am trying to send logs from filebeat to logstash, but getting the following error message

[2020-08-20T06:52:31,108][ERROR][logstash.outputs.elasticsearch][main][797474f8edf561358316c00f5117e9f69c7d9881a02a0e167b0d2d766731cecb] Encountered a retryable error. Will Retry with exponential backoff  {:code=>403, :url=>"http://127.0.0.1:8800/_bulk"}

Can anyone help?

Being said, 403 is permission related issue.
Previously, I have configured logstash with logstash_system user. Now I have used elastic user and its solved.
