How can we use Kibana Plugins such as Timelion, Shield, etc with ElasticSearch with static Kibana. The Kibana we have deployed is without the bundled server - see https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/1628. This version does not have the directory installedPlugins (where kibana stores installed plugins) or the kibana binary (used to install the plugin) in the deployed Service.
This is still not a supported deployment model, so I suspect you, wherever possible, may need to modify these plugins in order to be able to install them in your environment.
There's a lot of things that plugins do on the server layer to bootstrap themselves. If you're trying to run them without the server component, you're going to have a lot of work ahead of you to recreate all that logic.
Also a general warning, Kibana is going to be leaning more and more on the server layer to operate going forward. Running in "static mode" is going to be an uphill battle.
