Hi,
I am entirely new to Logstash and elasticsearch
Currently I am facing a problem creating LS pipeline using kafka input which receives an avro message.

![LS_Error|690x43](upload://qenPncDtsHg77VpMlewdhpEI33I.JPG)

The following is the configuration that is being used.

input {
kafka{
   bootstrap_servers => "localhost:9092"
group_id => "logstashgroup"
codec => {
      avro => {
        schema_uri => 'path\to\avro\schema\file.avsc'
      }
}
value_deserializer_class => "path\to\avro\deserializer\class\AvroDeserializer.class"
topics => "kafka_topic1"
}
}
output {
  stdout { }
  elasticsearch { hosts => "localhost:9200"
  index => "kafka_topic1_index"}
}

Installed:
logstash-5.5
logstash-input-kafka 5.1.8
logstash-output-elasticsearch 7.3.6
logstash-codec-avro 3.2.1
elasticsearch-5.5

Any help from the community is a motivation !

Thanks.
