Functionbeat 7.2.0 with kinesis base64 message

Hi

We are trying to send data from AWS kinesis to elasticsearch with functionbeat 7.2.0 (last released version).
Kinesis is storing message data in base64 encoding. Functionbeat will implement https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/functionbeat/7.3/decode-base64-field.html on next release. Anyone solved this situation with any workarround?

Thanks

Unfortunately you need to wait for the 7.3 release or you can checkout the 7.3 branch and build functionbeat yourself.

The messages are most likely gzipped and base64 encoded. Functionbeat 7.3 will also add a processor for uncompressing the messages.

Thanks for the info @steffens.
Do you know when will be released the 7.3 version?

Sorry, no ETA. But the 7.3 release branch exists already: https://github.com/elastic/beats/tree/7.3
