Hi,

I tried to install watcher plug in for elasticsearch 2.4 but getting the below error Could not find plugin descriptor 'plugin-descriptor.properties' in plugin zip

Due to firewall restrictions I cannot install using ,
bin/plugin install license

Hey,

you are trying to install way too old versions for watcher and the license plugin. Those are intended to run with Elasticsearch 1.x

Please follow the offline installation guidelines for Elasticsearch 2.x, which contains the right URLs.
