Real browser synthetic monitoringedit

In version 7.x, browser checks are in beta and will never be made generally available in 7.x.

If you want to use browser checks, we highly recommend using the latest version of browser checks available in 8.x. This functionality has changed significantly in version 8.x. We do not recommend using browser checks in 7.x anymore.

Synthetics app overview

[beta] 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 Uptime app uses Elastic Agent to run automated synthetic monitoring test suites using a real Chromium browser. Using the elastic-agent-complete Docker container, create a browser monitor to mimic the user experience across multistep journeys and analyze what the browser displays for each step alongside a test script.

To get started, try out our Elastic Agent using the elastic-agent-complete Docker container image. For details, refer to Get started using Elastic Agent and Fleet.

Or you might prefer to get started using our customizable Docker project template. This template provides two types of sample tests: a two-step inline test and a packaged todo application with a custom suite of tests. For more details, see Get started using Docker.
