Alerts and Actionsedit

This functionality is in beta and is subject to change. The design and code is less mature than official GA features and is being provided as-is with no warranties. Beta features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

The Alerts and Actions UI lets you see and control all the alerts in a space, and provides tools to create and manage connectors so that alerts can trigger actions like notification, indexing, and ticketing.

To manage alerting and connectors, open the main menu, then click Stack Management > Alerts and Insights > Alerts and Actions.

Example alert listing in the Alerts and Actions UI

Similar to dashboards, alerts and connectors reside in a space. The Alerts and Actions UI only shows alerts and connectors for the current space.

Elasticsearch also offers alerting capabilities through Watcher, which can be managed through the Watcher UI. See Differences from Watcher for more information.

Required permissionsedit

Access to alerts and actions is granted based on your privileges to alerting-enabled features. See Alerting Security for more information.
