A newbe to elastic, so pardon my lack of knowledge
My goal is to create more beats to metricbeat to gather more data. The whole infra I have (even development servers) is behind a firewall. I won't have access to any GIT repo from it.
In the documentation I see that first you need to download the beats to build from github.com/elastic/beats. But later on I see GIT is also used.
If I download manually the proper version of beats from the github repo and drop it on my server, will this be sufficent to follow the instructions later on? Or will I need GIT connection further on anyway? If not, is there any way to do it without GIT access?
Thanks for your answers
