Installing it like a standard plugin doesn't work? See

If not, try downloading the most recent gem file from and install it according to the instructions in the README file.

Hi Magnusbaeck ,

Thank you for your reply .

I downloaded the zip from git and try to install plugin but got below errors as server don't have capability to connect to internet

Ignoring ffi-1.9.13 because its extensions are not built. Try: gem pristine ffi --version 1.9.13
Validating /tmp/logstash-input-mongodb-master/logstash-input-mongodb-0.3.0.gem
Installing logstash-input-mongodb
fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
Error Bundler::HTTPError, retrying 1/10

Is there anyway to download all the gems required for this installation or do we have any zip file for all the gem dependencies
