Alert on logs error

Hi all.
I have scripts that run every night to back up gitlab and and at the end it logs a file with the result of that backup.
The logs are sent to our Elastic cloud account and from there I want to create an alert when that log has an error about the backup
How can I do that? the back up log is in a json format too.

Cheers

You can rely on Kibana Alerting Alerting | Kibana Guide [7.15] | Elastic

Thanks Yassine for the info.
The problem is I am not sure how to make the query properly, and selecting the right file onto the query.

@alfredo.deluca

The best way for us to help is show us some sample documents log looks like

What is a positive completed result and what is a negative / error result.

Thanks Stephen. I will do that asap

Cheers

Hi Stephen.
Here is an example of the log

{"timestamp" : "2021-09-26T16:08:50.000Z", "message": "backup failed", "status": "FAILED", "uuid": "fd574e4c-b10d-44fb-b92a-3fe7904885b6", "node": "node1"}

The file is called backup.log and I want to check the status FAILED then send an alert.

Cheers

I would probably start with the Log Threshold Rule... and check for

WITH status IS FAILED as your condition

IS more than 1

etc
