Install plugins

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

Install plugins with the plugin tool provided by Elasticsearch. For example, the command below will install the ICU plugin plugin:

$ cd installdir/elasticsearch
$ sudo bin/elasticsearch-plugin install analysis-icu

Once the plugin has been installed, change the user and group ownership of the plugin directory to the elasticsearch user. For example:

$ sudo chown -R elasticsearch:elasticsearch installdir/elasticsearch/plugins/analysis-icu/
