name
(Required, string) A name to reference and search.
tags
(Optional, string array) A list of keywords to reference and search.
schedule

(Required, object) When to run this alert. Use one of the available schedule formats.

Schedule Formats.

A schedule uses a key: value format. Kibana currently supports the Interval format , which specifies the interval in seconds, minutes, hours, or days at which to execute the alert.

Example: { interval: "10s" }, { interval: "5m" }, { interval: "1h" }, { interval: "1d" }.

throttle
(Optional, string) How often this alert should fire the same actions. This will prevent the alert from sending out the same notification over and over. For example, if an alert with a schedule of 1 minute stays in a triggered state for 90 minutes, setting a throttle of 10m or 1h will prevent it from sending 90 notifications during this period.
notifyWhen
(Required, string) The condition for throttling the notification: onActionGroupChange, onActiveAlert, or onThrottleInterval.
params
(Required, object) The parameters to pass to the alert type executor params value. This will also validate against the alert type params validator, if defined.
actions

Properties of the action objects:
group
(Required, string) Grouping actions is recommended for escalations for different types of alert instances. If you don’t need this, set the value to default.

actionTypeId
(Required, string) The id of the action type.
params
