Logstash instance shows as Standalone in Kibana Stack Monitoring

Hello, this very likely could be incorrectly categorized, but because it involves monitoring of Logstash, visibility in Kibana, and metric collection using Metricbeat, I've placed it here.

I've configured an ELK stack monitored with Metricbeat using Docker containers. Elasticsearch and Kibana are being monitored by Metricbeat in the default 'docker-cluster.' However, Logstash appears in a 'Standalone cluster' and when viewing the Logstash node, it shows a red flag icon populated with 'N/A' in setup mode.

I thought maybe this is because monitoring.cluster_uuid needs to be added with a value of 'docker-cluster' to the logstash.yml file. Although, I wasn't sure if then the monitoring property should be set to 'enabled.' As well, I'm not sure if I also need to add the cluster_uuid property to the logstash-xpack.yml in the modules.d folder in the Metricbeat container.

Thanks in advance for your help.
