Updating & Removing Plugins

To update a plugin, remove the current version and reinstall the plugin.

To remove a plugin, use the remove command, as in the following example:

$ bin/kibana-plugin remove x-pack

You can also remove a plugin manually by deleting the plugin’s subdirectory under the plugins/ directory.

Note

Removing a plugin will result in an "optimize" run which will delay the next start of Kibana.
