How do you use the ansible\elasticsearch playbook to update the es_plugins? I did an update from 7.8 to 7.9 and it's not updating the plugin.
Elasticsearch plugins should be reinstalled when Elasticsearch is updated.
es_plugins_reinstall should be set to true when Elasticsearch package install task changed:
If that's not the case, you can still force
true, however, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be set to
true automatically when Elasticsearch is upgraded.
Can you provide your Ansible playbook and logs so we can investigate?
