Help needed on winlogbeat

Hello there,

I am new to winlogbeat and elastic stack. I have installed winlogbeat 7.11.0 to monitor windows event logs of a proprietary application (eXX). The windows event log contains entries from 10th March upto 26th March 20201. My winlogbeat.yml is given below. I don't see any windows event logs going to logstash 7.11.0. Can someone help me getting it right? Does winlogbeat ignore events already present in the windows event log?
