Filebeat on macOS documentation error, breaking change

Hi all,

I'm running filebeat on macOS. It starts as a launchd service. After upgrading from 7 to 8, the daemon didn't run. I investigated this issue, and found that its command-line included --environment macos_service which is still suggested by the documentation, and worked prior to the upgrade.
Now it just makes the service die.

# /usr/local/filebeat/filebeat --environment macos_service
Error: invalid argument "macos_service" for "--environment" flag: 'macos_service' is not supported

Welcome to our community! :smiley: And thanks for highlighting this.

It'd be great if you would open an issue on Sign in to GitHub · GitHub for the team to dig into.
