Kubernetes custom metrics API for Horizontal Pod Autoscaler

Hi there.
I'm curious if there is a way to use metricbeat as a source for scaling resources in Kubernetes using HPA, as described here https://learnk8s.io/autoscaling-apps-kubernetes
The idea would be for instance to scale up the number of pods based on gathering some metric from the pod, such as number of http requests pr second, kafka consumer lag or whatever.

Should just follow this I guess. https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/custom-metrics-apiserver/blob/master/docs/getting-started.md
