Where have these plugins gone?


(Nathan) #1

I am trying to install the following plugins for elasticsearch 2.4.0

with bin/elasticsearch-plugin install [plugin_name]

https://download.elastic.co/elasticsearch/release/org/elasticsearch/plugin/head/2.4.0/head-2.4.0.zip
https://download.elastic.co/elasticsearch/release/org/elasticsearch/plugin/transport-couchbase/2.4.0/transport-couchbase-2.4.0.zip

they are not there, have they been moved?

They have never been provided by elastic.
Those are 3rd party tools or plugins.

Some questions:

  • Why are you using a so old version? 6.5.1 is the latest one. 7.0.0-alpha1 has been released as a preview. You should definitely upgrade.
  • Why do you think you need HEAD? Take a look at Kibana and specifically 6.5.1 which contains a lot of management tools, a dev console, ...
  • About couchbase, I'd look at https://docs.couchbase.com/elasticsearch-connector/4.0/index.html
