No Index for winlogbeat-*

For some reason, my winlogbeat indexes are not being created. I have installed the template manually and verified that it is there along with my default logstash template. I also see data hitting my logstash listening port (5170) via tcpdump. However, if I go into kibana and try to add an index pattern for winlogbeat-* , it doesn't recognize any. Also if I request a list of indices from elasticsearch, I only see my existing logstash-* indices and no winlogbeat-* indices. What would be the best way to troubleshoot this? I am currently running winlogbeat/logstash/elasticsearch 5.1.2 with the following config. Thanks for any help!

  registry_file: C:/ProgramData/winlogbeat/.winlogbeat.yml
    - name: Application
      ignore_older: 72h
    - name: Security
      ignore_older: 72h
    - name: System
      ignore_older: 72h
    - name: Microsoft-Windows-Sysmon/Operational
      ignore_older: 72h
    hosts: [""]
    worker: 1
    index: winlogbeat
logging.to_files: true
    path: C:/ProgramData/winlogbeat/Logs
    rotateeverybytes: 10485760 # = 10MB
    keepfiles: 3
logging.level: info

My logstash config (INPUT):

input {
      beats {
        port => 5150
        codec => json
        type => "suricata"
        tags => ["suricata"]
      beats {
        port => 5170
        type => "winlogbeat"

My logstash config (OUTPUT):

output {
    elasticsearch { hosts => ["localhost:9200"] }

Try using the example config for your Elasticsearch output in the Logstash config.

Also type => "winlogbeat" will not do anything so you can just remove it. type is already set by Winlogbeat and you cannot overwrite it. See the note under the type docs.
