Advanced Watch

I am using ELK in Supply Chain Traceability Company.

1 -- I wanted to create a Watcher to send "Alerts" from Kibana for the inventory items and it should be continuous alerts through email notification. Suppose an item has an expiry date of July 30th so on July 1st, the first email should pop out from the system, then a second on July 15th, another on July 22nd, and from July 23rd, continuous email(every day) mail should be sent to the clients.

2 -- I also want to put a watcher on the inventory count limit. Suppose it goes beyond a threshold limit, an alert from the system should pop out.

Can you please guide me that how to integrate in kibana also can it be done through the "Alerts" or through the "Watcher"

Can any one reply to this query

@Kumar_Abhinav have you looked at the watcher docs? It seems like the examples there are very similar to your use cases, including sending alerts via email.

Hi @Andrew_Tate. I looked into the Watcher docs and found some ways to configure the email setting in the kibana.yml file. However I did not find any such setting space in that file and when I created the same on my own, my kibana stopped working. FYI - I used this setting 25 False xxx_1234

Please guide me on this again. I will be very grateful to you for this.



Request Someone to give some guidance on this

Hi @Andrew_Tate . Request you guide me on this.

Hi @Kumar_Abhinav

I'm curious what directions you were following when you started adding settings to the kibana.yml config file.

As far as I can see in the doc here, you don't need to change anything in kibana.yml. However, as it mentions there, you do need to configure an email account in Elasticsearch.

Does that help?

Hi @Andrew_Tate Thanks for the message. After posting the message in the Community, I made these changes in the Elastic.yml file --
profile: outlook
auth: true
starttls.enable: true
port: 587
user: <email.address>

In the User Name - I gave my personal email ID for trial purposes. I got this as an error message - 2023-08-23T06:32:59,971][ERROR][o.e.x.w.a.e.ExecutableEmailAction] [nhra-prod2-es-kibana] failed to execute action [dcd9bba3-a4ad-4932-9c8a-560dcabf1248/email_1]
