Metricbeat not showing in kibana

I am using ELK ver 5.0 on a server and filebeat ver 5.0 on my client server, and want to use metricbeat ver 5.0. So I've installed and configured it accordingly. When i run status on metricbeat, it shows that it is running and the metricbeat logs shows that it is publishing events. However, it is not displaying anything on kibana under the metricbeat-* index. When I did curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/metricbeat-*/_search?pretty' I got 0 hits. Any idea where I'm going wrong?

This is my Metricbeat config

- module: system
    - cpu
    - load
    - filesystem
    - memory
    - network
    - process
  enabled: true
  period: 10s
  processes: ['.*']

  hosts: []
  index: metricbeat

This is my logstash-beats-input

input {
  beats {
    port => 5044

Thank you for your help!

By default Logstash sends the data to the logstash index. Please use the deafult Logstash config for beats provided here and try again:

BTW: You should see your data under logstash-* index already.
