Below is my config file in /etc/logstash/conf.d

input {
beats {
port => 5044
host => ""
output {
elasticsearch {
hosts => ["https://sanitized:9243"]
user => "elastic"
password => "sanitized"
index => "%{[@metadata][beat]}-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
document_type => "%{[@metadata][type]}"

Below is my PacketBeat Logstash output

There seems to be a mismatch here. Try removing the host parameter from the beats input.

Managed to fix it by removing the host from configuration file. Thanks
