Mapper-Attachments doesn't work

(valerio) #1

Hi David i've created a new thread.

I cannot figure out how to install attachment plugin on ES 2.3.4 on windows platform.

I've tried:

1)C:\Users\uibm>C:\Users\uibm\Desktop\elasticsearch-2.3.4\bin\plugin.bat install m
-> Installing mapper-attachments...
n/mapper-attachments/2.3.4/ ...
ERROR: failed to download out of all possible locations..., use --verbose to get
detailed information

It's not very clear to me what is the alternative way to install the plugin

It sounds like you have a proxy issue or something like this.
Have a look at

Otherwise, you can download manually from then install with:

bin/plugin install file:///path/to/
