How to install ElasticSeach plugins using docker compose

I have a docker-compose.yml file with an elastic search image:

  image: elasticsearch
    - "9200:9200"
  container_name: custom_elasticsearch_1

If I want to install additional plugins like the HQ interface or the attachment-mapper I have to do a manual installation with the following commands:

  • Is it possible to modify docker run option without removing and recreating the container?
  • cannot connect to cassandra docker with cqlsh
  • Multi-Node Hadoop in kubernetes
  • How to create docker containers with the same internal IP address?
  • when doing docker compose, is it possible to keep previous docker composition
  • CORS error upload file ~4mb
  • $ docker exec custom_elasticsearch_1 plugin install royrusso/elasticsearch-HQ
    $ docker exec custom_elasticsearch_1 plugin install mapper-attachments

    Is there a way to install them automatically when I run the docker-compose up command?

    Here is a blog post by Elastic pertaining to exactly that! You need to use a Dockerfile which executes commands to extend an image. Your Dockerfile will look something like this:

    FROM custom_elasticsearch_1
    RUN plugin install royrusso/elasticsearch-HQ
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
