How to backfil a saved evtx file into elasticsearch using winlogbeat

can we backfil saved evtx files from different windows machines into elasticsearch and use them for correlation and forensics stuff?
I used to do something like this with filebeat and webservers logs.

zcat logname.gz | .\filebeat.exe -e -v -c backfil.yml

and backfil.yml looks like this


- type: stdin
  enabled: true
  fields_under_root: true
  hosts: ["logstash:5044"]

  logging.level: info
  logging.to_files: true
  logging.metrics.enabled: false
  json.overwrite_keys: true

common event logs have channel names and we use those names in winlogbeat.yml file, so what if i have a saved file with a custom name like sysmon.evtx and wanna put entire content into elasticsearch?
is there any way to use the perfect event log template of winlogbeat and backfil saved evtx file straight into elasticsearch?
thanks for answers in advance

evtx files are currently not supporter by winlogbeat.
There is a currently community PR in progress for adding support:
