Status of plugin installation from github


(Michael Tonks) #1

Hi,

I recently had some trouble installing a plugin from github, and notice
other people have had similar issues:

Elsewhere I see similar issues with other plugins, with the suggestion that
it can be fixed / workaround using different url or something:

https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!searchin/elasticsearch/github/elasticsearch/EV80IBP8-rU/LeDrCJpCDaYJ

Can someone update me if this feature is working, or if there is some
alternative repository / easy way to be able to install plugins from github
without manual install?

Thanks,

Mike

Non-site plugins can no longer be hosted on Github as downloads. You need
to build the plugin yourself and install locally. Some plugins have
uploaded the binaries to maven.org or sonatype.org and the new plugin
script should know how to install them. Which plugin are you trying to
install and what command are you running?

Cheers,

Ivan

Hi Ivan,

Thanks for clarifying that. I'm trying to install the ActiveMQ river
plugin from here - https://github.com/domdorn/elasticsearch-river-activemq/

I have built and installed locally using maven, but I have to prepare an
install guide for our production servers and it would be better to pull
from a published binary than rolling our own.

If I build the package and upload to maven.org, are you saying the
elastisearch plugin installer will find it automatically? Are there any
special guidelines to follow?

Regards,

Mike

You do not need Maven or Sonatype, your favorite URL to a zip will do. On
the command line, add an "-url" parameter, documented at

The problem is that there is no zip file hosted anywhere AFAIK. You can
self host and use the -url parameter as Jorg suggested.
