Installing plugin through shell script without prompt


(Jayanna Hallur) #1

Hi

I want to include the plugin installation as part of automation scripts which will install the elastic nodes & install the plugins.

In the ES documentation, I dont see any option for forcing to accept "y" or dont prompt for y/n or by default install it.

root@ip-205-2-40:/usr/share/elasticsearch/plugins# sh /tmp/install_s3rep.sh
-> Downloading file:///root/repository-s3-5.2.2.zip
[=================================================] 100%
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
@ WARNING: plugin requires additional permissions @
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Continue with installation? [y/N]

====

root@ip-205-2-40:/usr/share/elasticsearch/plugins# /usr/share/elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch-plugin --help
A tool for managing installed elasticsearch plugins

Commands

list - Lists installed elasticsearch plugins
install - Install a plugin
remove - Removes a plugin from elasticsearch

Non-option arguments:
command

Option Description


-h, --help show help
-s, --silent show minimal output
-v, --verbose show verbose output
root@ip-205-2-40:/usr/share/elasticsearch/plugins#

I don't want it to be prompted for y/n input from user. Is there any parameter I shall pass it in command line?

You can pass the --batch flag.

Thanks. It worked with the --batch flag. It will be nice if they update in the documentation.

Thanks.

I meant, in the documentation where they given information about installing plugin i.e at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/plugins/current/repository-s3.html

As per the plugin help o/p there is no information about help on command too..

Syntax should have been
elasticsearch-plugin [command] --help|plugin-name

root@ip-205-2-40:/usr/share/elasticsearch/bin# ./elasticsearch-plugin --help
A tool for managing installed elasticsearch plugins

Commands

list - Lists installed elasticsearch plugins
install - Install a plugin
remove - Removes a plugin from elasticsearch

Non-option arguments:
command

Option Description


-h, --help show help
-s, --silent show minimal output
-v, --verbose show verbose output
root@ip-205-2-40:/usr/share/elasticsearch/bin#

thanks anyways for the information.
