X-Pack Watcher Alert Display on Kibana Dashboard

Hi all,

We currently have X-Pack installed and use it to generate alerts on particular conditions, when an alert is triggered it sends and email with the content and also generates the standard alert in the Watcher management section.

My question is, does anyone know how I can display these as a visualization on a Kibana dashboard, rather than having to force users to go into the management section just to check whether any alerts have been triggered?

I have tried displaying the URL inside a markdown widget, which I couldn't get to work (not sure if it can actually be done this way?).

I have also thought about using a table visualization but can't figure out whether that can be done either.

If anyone has any thoughts I would greatly appreciate some guidance.


Sounds like an interesting idea. Mind creating an enhancement request at https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/new?template=Feature_request.md?
