Simplify "host" field output from logstash

The current output of the default host field from my logstash is:

"host": {
"name": " name_of_host "

I have a need for the host to appear simply as:

"host": " name_of_host "

The reason for this needed change is related how kibana is expecting to find the "host" for building dashboards that need the host field. I have tried tweaks such as renaming the default "hostname" field (which has the structure I need) to "host". However, default fields from filebeat cannot be renamed in logstash. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thank you
