How to Install APM Server in Legacy mode without Elastic APM Integration

I would like to install APM Server in old way so in Legacy.
I have few problems with this installation.
Could someone explain me two cases:

  1. Is it possible to install APM in Legacy mode without this step?
    Step 2: Set up and configure | APM User Guide [8.6] | Elastic

APM Integration is neccessary also in legacy mode?

  1. If yes. How it is possible to install APM Integration without access to internet, without any external artifacts, proxies or servers?

Is there any binaries or plugins to install this? I saw this page Air-gapped environments | Fleet and Elastic Agent Guide [8.6] | Elastic but not good for my case.

The integration package is needed even when running in legacy mode. This is what installs index templates, ingest pipelines, and ILM policies in Elasticsearch.

It should be enough to add this to your kibana.yml config file:

- name: apm

Then when you (re)start Kibana, it should install the integration package. The APM integration package is bundled with Kibana, hence you don't need to run a separate Elastic Package Registry container, etc.

It is working great!
Thank you a lot lot lot!
