Kibana Shield Plugin Install Error: Plugin installation was unsuccessful due to error "unknown export types injectDefaultVars in plugin shield"


(Adam Melong) #1

Elasticsearch Version: 2.4.1
Kibana Version: 4.4.2
Shield Version: 2.4.1

I've read the following article: Shield 2.2.0 plugin for Kibana fails install due to error "unknown export types chromeNavControls in plugin shield"

And from what I've gathered, the Shield plugin needs to match the ES version. This is what I ran:
/opt/kibana/bin/kibana plugin --install kibana/shield/2.4.1

Is there a debug file I can read or maybe it's a different version I need?

If you want to run ES and Shield version 2.4, you'll need to update Kibana to 4.6: https://www.elastic.co/support/matrix#show_compatibility

Thank you. I was not aware of the compatibility matrix. That worked perfectly!
