Monitoring Logstash with X-Pack Not Working

Saw this blogpost: and decided to give it a try.
I installed the X-Pack plugin on my single Logstash node (5.2.1), added the following to my yaml:

xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.url: "https://blahblah:9243"
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.username: "user"
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.password: "password"

Then I restarted Logstash. Logstash went back to processing, logs for Logstash showed no errors. However, no monitoring never showed up in the Elasticsearch cluster. Not even seeing any monitoring indices created.

Tried changing the user I made to "super_user" role just to see if it was permissions. No change.

Elasticsearch (Elastic Cloud): 5.2.1
Kibana (Elastic Cloud): 5.2.1

Any ideas?

Can you curl the ES node using that URL + auth details?

Yeah, it's actually the same login and cluster that Logstash is using in the pipeline to write events to Elasticsearch. And that part is working so I know the username/password is good.
