Windows FileBeat not found in Kibana


#1

OS? Windows 10.
Guide used? http://robwillis.info/2016/05/installing-elasticsearch-logstash-and-kibana-elk-on-windows-server-2012-r2/
Did I research before coming here? YES
Error? No matching indices found: No indices match pattern "filebeat-*" (found on Kibana)

Set up ELK stack with the beats: filebeat, metricbeat, packetbeat, and winlogbeat. Everything seems to be working except filebeat. All services are running. Here is a copy of my filebeat config, thank you very much for your assistance!
*PS - if you have any suggestions to implement, i am open minded. This is used on my personal, host computer for learning purposes.

Could you share your filebeat log file and the version of filebeat you are using?
