Yes, fields in lucene are case-sensitive (it's just JSON).

You could of course change the field name to @message (I believe you need
the @ char too) before sending it to ES. You can do this multiple ways,
either by adding a rewrite rule in your logpath, or by changing the template
in the elasticsearch destination as suggested by Bazsi.
I suggest you read the documentation, or of course we can assist you further
in this list.
