Kibana Plugin Install Optimizer never completes on Docker

Am trying to install a plugin on my Docker image on an EC2. The plugin install step never finishes and stays on the optimizer step forever. Any notions on what am I doing wrong?

USER root
RUN curl -o
COPY kibana.yml /usr/share/kibana/config/kibana.yml
RUN echo "## The Plugin Environment Type : $CLICK2PLAY_PLUGIN_ENV_TYPE"
RUN echo "## The Plugin default Region   : $AWS_DEFAULT_REGION"
RUN mkdir /var/log/myapp/
RUN mkdir /var/log/myapp/myfolder/
RUN chown -R kibana:kibana /var/log/myapp/
RUN chown -R kibana:kibana /var/log/myapp/myfolder/
USER kibana
RUN ./bin/kibana-plugin install file://${PWD}/
RUN echo "DONE!!!!"

Install remains at this stage with zero movement beyond. "DONE" never gets console'd :

Step 14/15 : RUN ./bin/kibana-plugin install file://${PWD}/

Bear with with me as I'm not familiar with this specific plugin, but I was unable to confirm it at the location you provided. On the chance that there's something wrong with the file you're retrieving, would it be worth curling it from the github source releases?


Hi @Aaron_Caldwell I spent a lot of time looking at this. It doesnt look like the problem is with a specific plugin.
I believe the problem is happening because of this line in kibana.yml. If i comment out this line - things work perfectly. In my Dockerfile above - I have made adjustments to allow permissions to write to this. But that didn't work
