Upgrading libbeat and generated files

(Kevin Retzke) #1

What's the recommended procedure for upgrading the version of libbeat used by a beat? For point releases I expect just updating the vendored version will suffice, but what about major versions? Is there any way to update some of the generated files? Notably I see that sometime between 6.3.0 and 6.5.1 the build process has been moved to using mage, so there's some large changes there.
