A plugin can also be downloaded directly from a custom location by specifying the URL:

must be a valid URL, the plugin name is determined from its descriptor.

sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin install file:///path/to/plugin.zip
Windows

To install a plugin from your local file system at C:\path\to\plugin.zip, you could run:

bin\elasticsearch-plugin install file:///C:/path/to/plugin.zip
Note

Any path that contains spaces must be wrapped in quotes!

HTTP

To install a plugin from a HTTP URL:

sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin install http://some.domain/path/to/plugin.zip

The plugin script will refuse to talk to an HTTPS URL with an untrusted certificate. To use a self-signed HTTPS cert, you will need to add the CA cert to a local Java truststore and pass the location to the script as follows:

sudo ES_JAVA_OPTS="-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=/path/to/trustStore.jks" bin/elasticsearch-plugin install https://host/plugin.zip
