Create connectors in Kibanaedit

To use this connector, you must have been granted access to use the Observability AI Assistant feature. You cannot manage this connector in Stack Management > Connectors or by using APIs. You also cannot create an Observability AI Assistant preconfigured connector. It is available only when you’re creating a rule in Kibana. For example:

Add an Observability AI Assistant action while creating a rule in the Observability UI

You can have only one Observability AI Assistant action in each rule.

Connector configurationedit

Observability AI Assistant connectors have the following configuration properties:

The name of the connector to use to send requests to your AI provider. For more information, refer to OpenAI or Amazon Bedrock.
A message containing the prompt to send to the Observability AI Assistant. The message can specify a set of tasks for the assistant to perform, such as creating a graph or report, and it can call an available connector to send messages to an external system, such as Slack.

Currently you can only send messages to a Slack webhook. Support for additional connectors will be added in the future.

For example, you can create a rule that sends the following prompt to the AI Assistant when an error count threshold is breached:

High error count alert has triggered. Execute the following steps:
  - create a graph of the error count for the service impacted by the alert
  for the last 24h
  - to help troubleshoot, recall past occurrences of this alert, plus any
  other active alerts. Generate a report with all the found information
  and send it to the Slack connector as a single message. Also include
  the link to this conversation in the report.
