Metricbeat module question - Does the module need to be enabled before you have use it?

Do I need to enable a module before I use it or can enabling the module be controlled in the metricbeat.yml config file?

for example:

do I need to do this first? ./metricbeat modules enable windows


is this the same:

  • module: windows
    metricsets: ["perfmon"]
    period: 60s
    • instance_label: ""
      instance_name: "Total"
      ..... etc.
