My filebeat start occur error

Here is my configuration information:

processors:
  - add_host_metadata: ~
  - add_cloud_metadata: ~
  - drop_fields:
    fields: ["beat"]

I want to add a filter to remove the beat attribute, However, a startup error occurs after the drop_fields filter is added.The following is an error message

I don't know why

Hi @zhanghao116560 Bad Syntax / indentation

processors:
  - add_host_metadata: ~
  - add_cloud_metadata: ~
  - drop_fields:
      fields: ["beat"]  <!-- Note Indented 2 spaces

That's settled. Thank you very much
