How does upgrading kibana affect the plugins on kibana

I was wondering whether the plugins on kibana need to be reinstalled everytime kibana is upgraded? Is this also the case with elasticsearch plugins and upgrading elasticsearch?

Is there any way around this?

Yeah you do need to do this, and yes, it is frustrating.

I thought there was an issue on GH about having some kind of upgrade functionality in the plugin command, but I cannot see one. Please do create one though! :slight_smile:
