Logstash wont start correctly with systemctl

I have logstash 7.4 installed - when i run it from the command line via this
/usr/share/logstash/bin/logstash --path.settings /etc/logstash

it works fine - i see the log file and its showing up in the Kibana Monitoring dashboard

when i run it sudo systemctl start logstash its shows that its running without errors but there is not log file and i dont see it in my kibana dashboard under monitoring

i just have a basic logstash.yml right now - no pipelines or anything
