Kibana Alerts vs Watcher


I would like to know what is included with Kibana Alerts in the Basic Plan ?
I need to setup email alerts when certain conditions are met.
For exemple, send an email when

  • a new log entry exists where the user has locked his account
  • a new document has been added

Is that supported with Kibana Alerts ? What is the difference between Kibana Alerts and the Watcher feature ? The Watcher does not seem to be included in the Basic Plan.

Thank you

The Basic Subscription (Free) include Kibana Alerting framework with 2 actions : Index & Logging, check it here :
Any other action like email, slack, webhook, .... require at least a gold license


The differences between Watcher and Kibana alerting is noted in the docs, here:
