I am using ELK 6.2.4 for a while. Till now i have been uploading .csv files to create index in ES and create dashboards.
But recently my team asked to make it more dynamic and automated as in connect to a database , fetch data and create index and dashboard. My only lead is this plugin for Logstash.
Since I am using ELK on a secure server where i couldn't directly install this plugin, so I downloaded it from Github as a zip and tried installing with this command
/bin/logstash-plugin install file:///path_of_the_file.zip
It returned this error:-
ERROR: Invalid pack for: file:///home/tomadm/logstash-input-jdbc-master.zip, reason: The pack must contains at least one plugin, message: The pack must contains at least one plugin
Please help me solve this issue.
