Kibana Plugin Idea: Custom Alert Connector


I have been looking into alerting on Kibana, but only the internal connectors are available on the basic license. Is it possible to develop a custom connector for the alerting to action on a different endpoint?

For example, I would like to create a custom connector that will send the alert to my company software, so that we can be alerted through our software.

By this, I do not mean using the webhook option that is available, I mean to actually integrate a custom connector. Specifically because I would like to remain on the basic license.


Hey @Thomas_Vaudry-Read,

I believe it may be technically possible to create a custom Kibana plugin that adds a new connector, but it's largely undocumented at the moment and will likely be difficult to maintain as the underlying APIs are rapidly changing.

Take a look here: kibana/x-pack/plugins/actions at master · elastic/kibana · GitHub

My suggestion at the moment if you're very interested in doing this is to create a GitHub issue in the Kibana repository, and the team that manages the connectors framework may be able to help.
