Using kibana alerting with filters

hi all,
im quite new with kibana
i have kibana filled with messages coming from my equipment.
i created an inverted filtered of "blacklist" so i will see the only ones i care about.
now i want to create an alert that will notify any time a new alert is raised and its information to be send via slack connector

  1. how can i create an alert that will take into account my filter?
    this is the filter :

    here is an example of a message:

    this is the alert i want to do
  2. how can i make the alert send information of the message raised, i dont see it in the context options of slack connector.

thanks in advance if anymore infomation is needed i will supply it gladly

Hi @VAX,

  1. how can i create an alert that will take into account my filter?

For this one, if you're using log threshold, you should be able to click "+ Add condition" then choose field with a "DOES NOT MATCH" comparator. This should exclude the values you don't want.

  1. how can i make the alert send information of the message raised, i dont see it in the context options of slack connector.

This is a current limitation of the "Log threshold" alert type. There is a few enhancement requests opened that you can follow (elastic/kibana#78940 and elastic/kibana#69611).

Soon, we are also going add a new type of alert that can use Elasticsearch DSL and alert on matches. elastic/kibana#61313.

I hope this helps,
Mike
