I looks like the plugin command does not work if the elasticsearch folder is owned by root (which is the default).

         * service[elasticsearch] action nothing (skipped due to action :nothing)
         * elasticsearch_plugin[mobz/elasticsearch-head] action install[2015-10-06T11:53:32+00:00] WARN: Class Chef::Provider::ElasticsearchPlugin does not declare 'resource_name :elasticsearch_plugin'.
       [2015-10-06T11:53:32+00:00] WARN: This will no longer work in Chef 13: you must use 'resource_name' to provide DSL.

Hi -- we're actually testing this very thing in our test suites, and we're passing correct the user and group to the Chef resource which extracts the files.

Could you tell me if you're using the latest version? I know there was some issues with this previously, that have been fixed for at least a few weeks now.

Well, this line is just wrong:

-install is not correct,

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

It should be:

shell_out!("#{new_resource.bindir}/plugin install #{name}#{version}#{url}".split(' '), user: new_resource.user, group:

("-install" is not a valid param of "plugin")

P.S. Hi Martin :)

Hi @runningman84 and @erulabs -- could you try the 2.0.0_wip branch of this cookbook? It should have some fixes for the installation issue; it's our goal to release a 2.0.0 version that works with ES 2.0.0. It does have some changes from the current version, but depending on how complex your resource usage is, you may or may not be affected. Thanks!
