How to upgrade to a specific version

Hi all, I am currently on version 7.1.1, but I wish to upgrade it to 7.3.2. Instead of upgrading to the latest version 7.4.0, how can I upgrade using the repository to this 7.3.2 ?

Hello, thanks for the question about beats.

Which type of repository are you using - APT or YUM?

If you're using an APT repository, you can do the following to check versions of filebeat and install version 7.3.2.

# apt-cache policy filebeat
filebeat:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 7.4.0
