Love this walkthrough. Helped me a lot.

But it looks like there's been a few changes:

  • Marvel is now part of the X-Pack module.
  • The path for installing plugins has changed to bin/elasticsearch-plugin install x-pack

Thanks again, without this I would never have gotten it to work 👍

What a beautiful guides. Thanks a lot.
Though, may be we need to add xpack.security.enabled: false in config file of both kibana and elasticsearch, which disable the security check when using x-pack.
