I have elasticsearch 5.5.1 installed and running. I'm now trying to install logstash and required plugins to use against SQL Server. I'm trying to install the logstash-input-jdbc plugin but when I run the logstash plugin installer from powershell as admin (this is on windows server 2012 r2) I receive the following error:
So I went to github and downloaded the plugin leaving it in it's zip form in my C:\downloads folder.
I then ran
.\logstash-plugin install file:///C:/downloads/logstash-input-jdbc-master
and this time I get an error stating that it cant find the file. It's definitely in the specified place
if I add the file extension .zip to the end of the command I then get:
ERROR:Invalid pack for : file:///C:/downloads/logstash-input-jdbc-master.zip, reason: The pack must contain at least one plugin, message: The pack must contain at least one plugin
