Don't know i have done wrong something.

Hey @Vi_Hung_Tr_n,

Could you try quoting the values where you are using variables, for example here:

  - name: Application
    ignore_older: 72h

  - name: System

  - name: Security
      - script:
          lang: javascript
          id: security
          file: '${path.home}/module/security/config/winlogbeat-security.js'

  - name: Microsoft-Windows-Sysmon/Operational
      - script:
          lang: javascript
          id: sysmon
          file: '${path.home}/module/sysmon/config/winlogbeat-sysmon.js'

Dear Jaime, thanks , I've solved this problem by re-install the whole stack plus Winlogbeat
