I've been following the installation guides for installing filebeat 5.3. I got it running but I've been trying to import the dashboard to kibana and ran into what I think is a bug.
I pulled down the beat source code with:
go get github.com/elastic/beats
then checked out version 5.3 with:
git checkout 5.3
beats/libbeat/dashboards directory I ran
Everything up to this was fine but when I ran
./import_dashboards -beat filebeat
I got an error
Create temporary directory /tmp/tmp150029556 Downloading https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats/beats-dashboards/beats-dashboards-5.3.3.zip Unzip archive /tmp/tmp150029556 Error importing URL/file: Failed to unzip the archive: /tmp/tmp150029556/beats-dashboards-5.3.3.zip Exiting
I thought this might be an issue on my system (gentoo x86_64) but after looking into the url turns out
https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats/beats-dashboards/beats-dashboards-5.3.3.zip 404's. However 5.3.2 works -- looking at the github releases there is no 5.3.3 but I confirmed by running `beats/dev-tools/get_version that it returns 5.3.3 on the 5.3 branch. I'm not sure if the version should or shouldn't be 5.3.3 or 5.3.2 but if you follow the docs no one will be able to download the dashboards for 5.3.
This is rather confusing and annoying to figure out. Especially if you're not a person who likes to hunt around the source code for answers.
