#1

Hi,

I'm using elastic search 6.4.2 and i notised that when i run it without any plugins configuted elastic still creates an empty plugins folder and wonders why? and if that is something that can be removed?

Thanks,

the main reason is that we give elasticsearch security permissions on startup and require the folder to be present at this point. It's generally best practice to not make an exception here.
