Create a new packageedit

Rather than copying the source of an existing package, we recommend using the elastic-package create command to build a new package. Running this command ensures that your integration follows the latest recommendations for the package format.

Use the elastic-package TUI wizard to bootstrap a new package:

elastic-package create package

The wizard walks you through the creation of the package, including setting a package name, version, category, etc. When the wizard completes, you’ll have a basic package complete with a sample manifest, changelog, documentation, and screenshot.

It may not do anything yet, but your integration can be built and loaded into your locally running package registry from this step forward. Jump to Build at any point in this documentation to take your integration for a test run.
