Installing the syslog input plugin offline


#1

Hi,
I'm trying to install the syslog input plugin in an environment without internet access. I have downloaded the plugin zip from GitHub and unzipped into a directory on my Linux box.
I have the following command line example:

bin/logstash-plugin install /path/to/logstash-output-kafka-1.0.0.gem

But when I search my expanded zip I cannot find a .gem file. As a result when I execute the following command line, unsurprisingly it fails:

/usr/share/logstash/bin/logstash-plugin install lplugs/syslog/logstash-input-syslog.gemspec

Can a generous and kind patient soul perhaps help this novice out?

Thanks,
Quizzy

You don't need to unzip things, just reference the zip file when you run the install command, per https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/offline-plugins.html#installing-offline-packs
