Map Widget Plugin for Graylog

Build Status

Provides a message filter plugin to lookup GeoIP information for IP addresses, and a map widget to display that location information.

Required Graylog version: 2.0 and later


This plugin is included by default in Graylog 2.0 tarballs and packages, so you do not need to install it by hand.

For now we do not provide individual releases of the plugin, but you can still find it inside the Graylog tarball available in the downloads page. The plugin is located in the plugin directory of the tarball.

Once you get the .jar file from the tarball, place it in your Graylog plugin directory. The plugin directory is the plugins/ folder relative from your graylog-server directory by default and can be configured in your graylog.conf file.

Restart graylog-server and you are done.


You can improve your development experience for the web interface part of your plugin dramatically by making use of hot reloading. To do this, do the following:

  • git clone https://github.com/Graylog2/graylog2-server.git
  • cd graylog2-server/graylog2-web-interface
  • ln -s $YOURPLUGIN plugin/
  • npm install && npm start

Plugin Release
