Winlogbeat to Logstash


I am very new to ELK technology. I am trying to push windows Event logs to the Logstash server but i am unable to do it. I am using this documentation:

Logstash config: No filter nothing.

input {
  beats {
    port => 5044

# The filter part of this file is commented out to indicate that it is
# optional.
# filter {
# }

output {
  elasticsearch {
    hosts => ""
    manage_template => false
    index => "%{[@metadata][beat]}-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
    document_type => "%{[@metadata][type]}"

Winlogbeat winlogbeat.yml:

  - name: Microsoft-Windows-Kerberos/Operational

  # The Logstash hosts
  hosts: [""]

The logstash service running properly.

Now, on winlogbeat machine i have installed the winlogbeat service and it is running. How do i push the logs to logstash server? I know i am missing something but after spending 4+ hours i couldn't figure out. Please help

Winlogbeat version 5.6.2
logstash version 5.6.2

Thanks in advance!!

Your configuration looks correct. If Winlogbeat is unable to send to Logstash it'll tell you about it in its log.
