Implement add-on functionality for Kibana with plug-in modules.
The Kibana plugin interfaces are in a state of constant development. We cannot provide backwards compatibility for plugins due to the high rate of change. Kibana enforces that the installed plugins match the version of Kibana. Plugin developers must release a new version of their plugin for each new Kibana release.
The known plugins were tested for Kibana 5.x, so we are unable to guarantee compatibility with your version of Kibana. The Kibana installer rejects any plugins that haven’t been published for your specific version of Kibana. We are unable to evaluate or maintain the known plugins, so care should be taken before installation.

To add your plugin to this page, open a pull request.
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 or file path to a specific plugin, as in the following examples:
$ bin/kibana-plugin install https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/packs/x-pack/x-pack-8.0.0.zip
$ bin/kibana-plugin install file:///local/path/to/custom_plugin.zip
You can specify URLs that use the HTTP, HTTPS, or
Proxy support for plugin installationedit
Kibana supports plugin installation via a proxy. It uses the
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>
Update and remove pluginsedit
To update a plugin, remove the current version and reinstall the plugin.
To remove a plugin, use the
remove command, as in the following example:
$ bin/kibana-plugin remove x-pack
You can also remove a plugin manually by deleting the plugin’s subdirectory under the

Use the following command to disable a plugin:

By default, the plugin manager provides you with feedback on the status of the activity you’ve asked the plugin manager
to perform. You can control the level of feedback for the
remove commands with the
--silent options. Use the
--quiet option to suppress all non-error output. Use the

By default, plugin manager installation requests do not time out. Use the
--timeout option, followed by a time, to
change this behavior, as in the following examples:
Waits for 30 seconds before failing.
bin/kibana-plugin install --timeout 30s sample-plugin
Waits for 1 minute before failing.
bin/kibana-plugin install --timeout 1m sample-plugin
Plugins and custom Kibana configurationsedit
--config options with the
remove commands to specify the path to the configuration file
used to start Kibana. By default, Kibana uses the configuration file
config/kibana.yml. When you change your installed
bin/kibana-plugin command restarts the Kibana server. When you are using a customized configuration file,
you must specify the path to that configuration file each time you use the
