Logstash creates pipeline but index is not created

I am trying to create an index on elasticsearch cloud using a json file. I have created the configuration as given below:

input {
        file {
                path => ["/root/leads.json"]
                start_position => "beginning"
                ignore_older => 0
output {
        elasticsearch {
                        hosts => ["https://ac9xxxxxxxxxxxxxb.us-east-1.aws.found.io:9243"]
                        user => "elastic"
                        password => "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

I am able to run the logstash using the command
sudo bin/logstash -f /etc/logstash/conf.d/logstash.conf

The logstash starts a pipeline, but I am not seeing any index getting created in elasticsearch

Please let me know what additional work needs to be done to create index ?
