Problem configuring Gmail account for watcher


#1

I'm following the info at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/watcher/current/email-services.html#gmail

Placing in elasticsearch.yml the following:

watcher.actions.email.service.account:
    gmail_account:
        profile: gmail
        smtp:
            auth: true
            starttls.enable: true
            host: smtp.gmail.com
            port: 587
            user: <username>
            password: <password>

trying with username in both the form xyz@gmail.com and just xyz.
The gmail account is configured to "Allow Less Secure Apps" and two-step verification is off.

But when I restart the Elasticsearch service, errors occur:

org.elasticsearch.bootstrap.StartupException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: unknown setting > [watcher.actions.email.service.account.gmail_account.smtp.starttls.enable] please check that any required plugins are installed, or check the breaking changes documentation for removed settings

repeated for the other watcher.actions.email.service.account.gmail_account.* fields.

When I tried with an Exchange server account instead, using the info at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/watcher/current/email-services.html#exchange, that worked, but I haven't been able to get the Gmail configuration to work.


#2

Realized my error. I must have originally copy-pasted the Gmail configuration settings from an older version of the docs at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/watcher/current/email-services.html

watcher.actions.email.service.account:

should now be:

xpack.notification.email.account:

It seems to be working now.
