NOTE: You are looking at documentation for an older release. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
The documentation for each plugin usually includes specific installation instructions for that plugin, but below we document the various available options:
Core Elasticsearch pluginsedit
Core Elasticsearch plugins can be installed as follows:
sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin install [plugin_name]
For instance, to install the core ICU plugin, just run the following command:
sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin install analysis-icu
This command will install the version of the plugin that matches your Elasticsearch version and also show a progress bar while downloading.
