I am trying to configure elastalert 2 to read from elasticsearch index and send alert according to configured rule, i am using gmail smtp and app password to achieve this. Every thing is running fine but when i try to test it, its giving me the authentication error however i have changed app password multiple time but nothing did work.
First i gave the smtp_auth_file location to read the creds but that didn't work and Elastalert won'tstart then i have define the user and pass in file then its get start but giving authentication error
Here is my elastalert config file.
rules_folder: /opt/elastalert/rules run_every: seconds: 10 buffer_time: minutes: 15 es_host: x.x.x.x es_port: 9200 es_username: elastic es_password: upmFVKkXXgaLONnUzhp writeback_index: elastalerting writeback_alias: elastalerting alert_time_limit: days: 2 #smtp_user: firstname.lastname@example.org #smtp_password: fsdp gwvm emyo jdiq smtp_host: "smtp.gmail.com" smtp_port: 587 smtp_ssl: false from_addr: "email@example.com" #smtp_auth_file: "/opt/elastalert/authen.yaml" user: firstname.lastname@example.org password: fsdojdipgwvmemyq
