Install Azure cloud plugin in elasticsearch without any downtime ES?


I had elasticsearch cluster in live environment, i need to add azure cloud plugin to it . i know that when i downloaded azure cloud plugin i need to restart the cluster. since the cluster is in live environment is there any possible way to get it done in runtime without any downtime for ES ??


You can try a rolling upgrade strategy. This should work in the context of azure discovery plugin.


Why i need to use rolling upgrade strategy here because i am not upgrading anything in ES cluster?

Can you please put a light on that?


You want to install a new plugin?

You need to restart the node.

You want to do it without downtime?

The rolling upgrade procedure describes how to do it.

The only thing which changes is that you don't have to upgrade the node but install the plugin instead.
