Xpack watcher email notifications with Mailgun 6.3

alerting

(Jeremy Foran) #1

It took me a bit to get this working and thought I would share my working config for the benefit of the community.

This is the configuration I used to resolve the issue:

xpack.notification.email.account:
    mailgun_account:
        email_defaults:
            from: watcher@domain.com
        smtp:
            auth: true
            host: smtp.mailgun.org
            port: 587
            user: watcher@domain.com
            password: password

Hey,

just to be sure: Everything is working now? So with the configuration you pasted below, the above exception does not happen, correct?

It depends a bit on the email provider, if a default email address is used or not, thus we do not do this check in watcher itself.
