You cannot do this, that's a pretty big security issue.

What are you trying to do?

Why do you want to execute a shell script though?

i have created web dashboard to execute this script. but i wanna try it in kibana. if kibana plugin can handle this, i think i don't need my web dashboard anymore. so i just use kibana for the dashboard.
