Installing Canvas


(Jason) #1

Is there a binary download available for Canvas for offline install?

I'm getting cert errors when trying to install per Canvas website.
I have tried sudo wget --no-check-certificate https://download.elastic.co/kibana/canvas/kibana-canvas-0.1.2225.zip to no avail.

When trying to install Canvas
sudo ./kibana-plugin install https://download.elastic.co/kibana/canvas/kibana-canvas-0.1.2225.zip

I receive
Error: Client request error: self signed certificate in certificate chain

2225 has issues, we just published 2201 as a replacement. Sorry about that. You can find the most recent instructions on the canvas site. That's built for 6.4.3.

There is no "static build", that doesn't exist in Kibana land. That URL is what we use to distribute the plugin, and I haven't seen anyone else have cert issues when downloading from there. We've remove 2225 from there entirely, perhaps that's why it was failing? Give 2201 a shot and let us know if you still have issues.

Same error. I just tried installing again via the link you gave and received:

Attempting to transfer from https://download.elastic.co/kibana/canvas/kibana-canvas-0.1.2201.zip
Error: Client request error: self signed certificate in certificate chain
Plugin installation was unsuccessful due to error "Client request error: self signed certificate in certificate chain"

Strange, I haven't seen anyone else get that error. With the release of 6.5.0 today, Canvas is included by default, and we're advising users to just upgrade to that version. It's got a ton of new things that aren't available in the old releases anyway. We're working on updating, or more correctly decommissioning, the old Canvas site.

Ok thanks Joe, I'll upgrade.

Just an update that I was able to obtain the file with wget, and install canvas with:

sudo bin/kibana-plugin install file:///path/to/kibana-canvas-0.1.2085.zip
