Shield Install failing?


I've just tried to install shield on a new ES instance. Running the Step 1 plugin install from fails and it looks as if it's because the github repo no longer exists.

bin/plugin -i elasticsearch/license/latest
bin/plugin -i elasticsearch/shield/latest

Can you help? I presume it's just a different path needs to be used and the documentation updated?

Hi Stuart,

I just tested installing Shield and the licensing plugin according to the installation instructions on both ES 1.4.5 and ES 1.5. Can you post the error messages you're getting here?

Argh - ignore. Must be my proxy doing something strange; I can get the file.

For reference I'm using ES 1.5.2 on a Windows 7 machine...

>bin\plugin -i elasticsearch/license/latest
Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: ...
-> Installing elasticsearch/license/latest...
Failed to install elasticsearch/license/latest, reason: failed to download out of all possible locations..., use --verbose to get detailed information

I manually downloaded from and can get the file, so this is the issue. I'll just install it manually.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
