Install pluginsedit

Use the following command to install a plugin:

bin/kibana-plugin install <package name or URL>

When you specify a plugin name without a URL, the plugin tool attempts to download an official Elastic plugin, such as:

$ bin/kibana-plugin install x-pack

Install plugins from an arbitrary URLedit

You can download official Elastic plugins simply by specifying their name. You can alternatively specify a URL to a specific plugin, as in the following example:

$ bin/kibana-plugin install https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/packs/x-pack/x-pack-8.0.0.zip

You can specify URLs that use the HTTP, HTTPS, or file protocols.

Proxy support for plugin installationedit

Kibana supports plugin installation via a proxy. It uses the http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables to detect a proxy for HTTP and HTTPS URLs.

It also respects the no_proxy environment variable to exclude specific URLs from proxying.

You can specify the environment variable directly when installing plugins:

$ http_proxy="http://proxy.local:4242" bin/kibana-plugin install <package name or URL>
