I installed shield with:

elasticsearch_plugin 'elasticsearch/shield/latest' do
  plugin_dir plugin_dir

but unfortunately the permissions for bin are messed up:

elasticsearch@thomas-elasticsearch02:~$ ls -l bin/
total 328
-rwxr-xr-x 1 elasticsearch elasticsearch   8114 Jul 29 09:56 elasticsearch
drwxr-xr-x 2 root          root            4096 Sep 14 18:20 shield
ls -l config/
total 24
-rw-rw-r-- 1 elasticsearch elasticsearch 13476 Jul 16 10:09 elasticsearch.yml
drwxr-xr-x 2 root          root           4096 Sep 14 18:20 shield

I think the shellout command runs as root for me instead of elasticsearch:

shell_out!("#{new_resource.bindir}/plugin -install #{name}#{version}#{url}".split(' '))

Looks like you need to pass in the user and group like in:'command', user: 'user', group: 'group')
