Filebeat docker image build failure

I tried to build filebeat docker container image from this repo

I ended up with this.

Step 4 : RUN curl -Lso - | tar zxf - -C /tmp && mv /tmp/auditbeat-7.0.0-alpha1-linux-x86_64 /usr/share/auditbeat
---> Running in e64e1ab4e27b

The reason is the broken links like

Do you support this repo?

You should probably use a different branch, we use master for next releases, so auditbeat-7.0.0 is not yet released. Have a look to branches and choose the one you are interested on. For latest non-production release (6.0.0-rc2) use 6.0 branch

Sorry, I forgot to say that I tried 6.x, 6.0 they doesn't work. But today I've found out that 5.6 works fine. Is this the latest version of the filebeat?

Hi @4xy

The 6.0.0-rc2 version has not been released yet that's why the "default" build on the 6.0 branch doesn't work.

So, you can use the ELASTIC_VERSION to set the version that you want to build, for example

 git checkout -b 6.0 origin/6.0
 ELASTIC_VERSION=6.0.0-rc1 make

Then the build should work (all tests should succeed and the beats images available locally)

I hope that helps you.
