Query alert indices

Index patterns for querying alert data.

This page explains how you should query alert indices, for example, when building rule queries, custom dashboards, or visualizations. For more information about alert event field definitions, review the Alert schema.

Alert index aliases

We recommend querying the .alerts-security.alerts-<space-id> index alias. You should not include a dash or wildcard after the space ID. To query all spaces, use the following syntax: .alerts-security.alerts-*.

Alert indices

For additional context, alert events are stored in hidden Elasticsearch indices. We do not recommend querying them directly. The naming convention for these indices and their aliases is .internal.alerts-security.alerts-<space-id>-NNNNNN, where NNNNNN is a number that increases over time, starting from 000001.
