Create Plugins Offline Package¶
If you are installing HELK, and the helk-logstash extra plugins are still being installed over the Internet, you can use the following steps to export them in an zipped offline package to then be loaded to the system that does not have access to the Internet and it is stuck at installing plugins.
Remember that you will need to do this in a system where HELK is already installed and the plugins were installed successfully.
Access your helk-logstash docker container in the system where HELK was successfully installed already:
sudo docker exec -ti helk-logstash bash
Using the logstash-plugin script prepare and export the plugins offline package
bin/logstash-plugin prepare-offline-pack logstash-filter-translate logstash-filter-dns logstash-filter-cidr logstash-filter-geoip logstash-filter-dissect logstash-output-kafka logstash-input-kafka logstash-filter-alter logstash-filter-fingerprint logstash-filter-prune logstash-codec-gzip_lines logstash-codec-netflow logstash-filter-i18n logstash-filter-environment logstash-filter-de_dot logstash-input-wmi logstash-filter-clone
Offline package created at: /usr/share/logstash/logstash-offline-plugins-6.6.1.zip You can install it with this command bin/logstash-plugin install file:///usr/share/logstash/logstash-offline-plugins-6.6.1.zip
Copy the offline package from your helk-logstash container to your local system
sudo docker cp helk-logstash:/usr/share/logstash/logstash-offline-plugins-6.6.1.zip .
Copy the logstash-offline-plugins-6.6.1.zip to the OFFLINE-ISOLATED (i.e. 10.0.10.102) system. You bust be authorized to ssh to it.
scp logstash-offline-plugins-6.6.1.zip email@example.com:/home/helk/
Now you should be able to use it in the offline-isolated HELK system
