Plugins

Add-on functionality for Siren Investigate/Kibana is implemented with plugin modules. You can use the bin/investigate-plugin command to manage these modules. You can also install a plugin manually by moving the plugin file to the plugins folder and unpacking the plugin files into a new folder.

Generally Kibana plugins are compatible with Siren Investigate provided the plugin is compatible with the Kibana version mentioned in the Management section.

Plugin Compatibility

Plugin compatibility

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 itself. Plugin developers will have to release a new version of their plugin for each new Kibana release as a result.
