How to update to ReadonlyREST 1.16.8?


(Robin Muilwijk) #1

Hi,

I have the ReadonlyREST plugin installed on ES. What are the quick steps to update to this new release?

Is it as simple as uninstalling the old plugin, and install the new one? And do I need to stop ES and Kibana while performing these actions, or do I keep them both running?

Thanks.

For both ES and Kibana, yes. Uninstall the old plugin and install the newer one.
The plugin/readonlyrest in both cases does not contain any state.

Thanks! And would I need to stop ES, or actually keep it running during install? I would assume I would need to stop it, then perform the install, then start ES again?

OK @rmuilwijk you win, you convinced me to document that.
