Watch payload options

alerting

(piyush) #1

Hi Team,
I read about watcher "script and template" documentation that suggests writing Groovy scripts and all to add index fields along with alert message body. But i didn't understand it much, obviously being a new bee.

can you share an example or document for below requirement:

  1. topbeat disk alert
  2. message body should contain value of "fs.used_p"

Below might put some more light:

Note: my actual input condition is below one, match_all query is just for testing to include match_all result in input payload
"filter": {
"range": {
"fs.used_p": {"gt": 0.40}
}
}

put _watcher/watch/fs_disk_top1
{
"trigger": {
"schedule": {
"interval": "300s"
}
},
"input": {
"search": {
"request": {
"indices": [
"topbeat-2016.08.03"
],
"body": {
"query" :{
"match_all": {}
}
}
}
}
},
"condition": {
"compare": {
"ctx.payload.hits.total": {
"gt": 0
}
}
},
"actions": {
"email_admin": {
"email": {
"to": "abc",
"subject": "{{ctx.watch_id}} executed",
"body": "Disc utilization is more than 50 {{ctx.metadata.*}}"
}
}
}
}

Result (copied only relevant lines):

    "search": {
      "request": {
        "search_type": "query_then_fetch",

            "text": "Disc utilization is more than 50 "
          }
        }
      }
    }
  ]
}

}
}

Hey,

the snippet you pasted shows you, which parameters are used for the template based search input (which you can specify as part of that search).

Your problem seems to be a different one. You want to access the payload of the search result in the action. The search response is stored in ctx.payload, which you already accessed in the script condition. If you want to specify a certain field, you have to specify it instead of hits.total
