Logstash output to elasticsearch - open distro for elasticsearch

I have been working on this project, and my logstash configuration file works fine. Now I am trying to implement the same thing on a system that is running opendistro/elk stack.

I have tried to fix most of the errors, but now I am receiving this and not sure how to proceed further

Here's the output section of my config

                hosts => ["https://localhost:9200"]
                index => "kcpvxbeattest-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"

Which version are you running exactly? Are you running Elastic Stack with a BASIC(or higher) license or are you running OpenDistro? In the latter case you should check out the OpenDistro Forum for support.

Best regards


Try enabling log.level debug and see if you get a more informative error message.
