Where can i download the latest beats with static link?

For example, in the downloads page all the links point to a numbered version like:
https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats/filebeat/filebeat-7.6.1-amd64.deb

I have already tried:
https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats/filebeat/filebeat-latest-amd64.deb

But it does not exist.

I am planning on install it on our custom docker image with a dockerfile, so i would like to automatically download the latest version, and i need a link with the latest version for that.

Does it exist? i would prefer not to modify the dockerfile constantly every time there is a new version on the beats.

This is not possible and it's unlikely that we'll offer it in the future either. We believe providing latest links to release artifacts is a bad software development practice as you might download a newer release artifact with unexpected changes without really knowing it. So we recommend specifying strict versions instead in release artifact URIs instead.
