Any community plugins for Elasticsearch 5.x?

Hello Guys,

Is there any community plugins available for Elasticsearch 5.x version?

for example: head, kopf, bigdesk, elasticHQt, etc

Site plugins are not supported in 5.x — see for the details.

You can either run the plugins outside Elasticsearch (also described in the blog post) or use the basic Monitoring plugin in Kibana for free:

Please install ES head, it works for me for new version of ES.. (5.x)
You can keep that on any server and pass your ES IP and Port as url parameter.

And set this in your config file "http.cors.enabled: true ";

I hope this will help. I am using new ES head for last 2 weeks. It works fine.

Regards, Amar

Thanks guys. Any idea when they support in built?

I mean to say installing in same server with

sudo /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch-plugin install mobz/elasticsearch-head

Thanks :slight_smile:

As @xeraa pointed out, site plugins are no longer supported directly in Elasticsearch, so from version 5.0 onwards they can no longer be installed as a plugin in Elasticsearch and instead need to be hosted externally.
