Logstash in free version?

I got filebeat working with elastic search and kibana.
Now i would like to get it working with logstash as an endpoint for filebeat.
I'm using using a non clustered free version of ELK using no payed license.
In such a setup is basic authenticate of elasticuser with a password allowed ?

because when i try to set a password on the elastic user i get the warning:

"Security must be explicitly enabled when using a [basic] license. Enable security by setting [xpack.security.enabled] to [true] in the elasticsearch.yml file and restart the node."

You should do that. You do not need a paid license for it.
