Alert Wizard plugin install issue

I followed the instructions from here:
and planted the wizard JAR file under /usr/share/graylog-server/plugin

i restarted the graylog server, but… it doesn’t show up under the plugins section.

I tried both 4.4 versions and also 4.1 of the wizard. but… still, doesn’t show up.

What’s the trick?

New to graylog, and having the same issue. Following for any updates.

Hey @adrianrus

check permission on that plugin , ensure Graylog can read it. Other then that, I’m not sure. See anything in the logs?

Edit, it should show in the Search bar

it seems that is just… appeared in there :))

So, i added the 4.1 JAR file in that PATH and that was it.
It took a while to update it seems.

Thank you

Are you using a self signed cert ?

that Java error is pretty generic.

  • empty
  • not found
  • couldn’t be opened (due to wrong/missing trustStorePassword
  • file access permissions

You may want to re-read the documentation for the correct version of the plugin corresponding to the version of Graylog your using.


I work closely with developpers on this plugin, I’ll try to help you.
First thing to check is the version. Get the last version according to your Graylog version:

Wizard Plugin Version Graylog Version
4.4.x 4.3.x
4.3.x 4.2.x
4.2.x 4.2.x
4.1.x 4.2.x
4.0.x 4.1.x
3.3.x 3.3.x
3.2.x 3.2.x
3.1.x 3.0.x
3.0.x 3.0.x
2.0.x 2.5.x
1.1.x 2.5.x
1.0.0 2.4.x

Which Graylog version are you using ?

Then you should check unix permissions on /usr/share/graylog-server/plugin.
The graylog user must have the read right.
If you change something, restart the Graylog service. It doesn’t take a while, you should see result immediately.

Finally you should check server.log, you could have more details about errors.
