Can I install Kibana as an Elasticsearch plugin?


(Ij888) #1

I am trying to run plugin install kibana on my Elasticsearch v2.3.3 installation as a plugin (windows machine) but keep getting the failed to download out of all possible locations error message. I must be doing something wrong. Any thoughts?

Kibana isn't available as an Elasticsearch plugin. What makes you think it is?

This video (https://info.elastic.co/2016-03-AB-Test-Getting-Started-ES_Video.html?aliId=41942463) led me believe so. Anyways, I am trying to work it all out, so I gather me needs start Kibana separately while an instance of Elasticsearch is running. Only, I can't get to Sense..

KB was never officially installable as a plugin for ES.
You could hack KB3 into ES 1.X, but that's about it.
