When or how often does setup need to be done?

In reference to setup of any of the Beats, but specifically Filebeat (e.g. filebeat setup -e, see https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/7.4/load-kibana-dashboards.html), how often should setup be run? Is this only needed once per Elasticsearch instance per Beat type? Per machine/installation? Does running it as part of installing it on every machine cause any issues with the Elasticsearch instance to which it's connecting? I can't find any guidance on how often to run this in the docs anywhere.
