Universal forwarder configured to collect application event logs

Trying to collect specific GPO event codes so we've created an app on the universal forwarder with the below in the inputs.conf file:

[WinEventLog://Application]
disabled = 0
current_only = 1
evt_resolve_ad_obj = 1
checkpointInterval = 300
whitelist = 5126,5257,5312,5313,1069,1128,4098
blacklist1 = EventCode="4662" Message="Object Type:\s+(?!groupPolicyContainer)"
blacklist2 = EventCode="566" Message="Object Type:\s+(?!groupPolicyContainer)"
index = wineventlog
renderXml=false

I can see the event logs on the server but can't see any in splunk. The wineventlog index already exists.

By changing the first line to the below I got what I was after:

[WinEventLog://Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy/Operational]
