Install plugins on Logstash and Kibana

Install plugins on Logstash

Logstash supports input, filter, codec and output plugins. These are available as self-contained gems (RubyGems.org). You can install, uninstall and upgrade plugins using the Command Line Interface (CLI) invocations described below:

  • Install a plugin:

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/logstash
    $ bin/logstash-plugin install PLUGIN
    
  • Update a plugin:

    $ bin/logstash-plugin update PLUGIN
    
  • List all installed plugins:

    $ bin/logstash-plugin list
    
  • Uninstall a plugin (for Logstash <= 2.4 versions):

    $ bin/logstash-plugin uninstall PLUGIN
    

Install plugins on Kibana

Add-on functionality for Kibana is implemented with plug-in modules.

  • Install a plugin:

    $ cd /opt/bitnami/kibana
    $ bin/kibana-plugin install ORG/PLUGIN/VERSION
    
  • List all installed plugins:

    $ bin/kibana-plugin list
    
  • Remove a plugin:

    $ bin/kibana-plugin remove PLUGIN
    

You can also install a plugin manually by moving the plugin file to the plugins directory and unpacking the plugin files into a new directory.
