Unable to install logstash kusto plugin using 6.4.2 version


I'm using logstash 6.4.2 version and trying to install kusto plugin. Logstash is throwing an error

bin/logstash-plugin install logstash-output-kusto
Cannot find Java 1.5 or higher.

But, my machine has Java 8. I tried copying jdk folder to logstash folder, still the same. Anything else required to install this plugin using logstash 6.4.2? I did check this plugin is supported with logstash 6+ versions.

I figured out logstash lower versions like 6+ requires JAVA_HOME environment variable to be setup. Otherwise, the plugins cannot be installed. But, in higher versions of logstash it looks like it's working without environment variable.

Resolved this by adding JAVA_HOME to environment variables PATH location.
