Alerting

Customized triggers that spring automated workflows into action

503 errors stacking up. Applications not responding. CPU and RAM utilization jumping. See these warnings as they happen — not as part of the post-mortem.

New

7.7 brings new alerting capabilities and integrations with Metrics, APM, Uptime, and SIEM. Plus, new connectors to ServiceNow, PagerDuty, and Slack.

Create alerts in-app with context

Often the idea to create an alert occurs when you're working with relevant data. Create alerts in the moment with a rich flyout menu — no matter if you’re fully immersed in the APM, Metrics, Uptime, or SIEM application.

Monitor all of your alerts in one place in Kibana

Want a holistic view? Head to the Alerts and Actions section inside of the Kibana Management tab to see, search, and filter all of your alerts from a central location.

Get notified, your way

How would you like to be notified? Extend your alerts by connecting them to actions that use built-in integrations for email, Slack, and PagerDuty. Alerting inside the Elastic Stack also supports a powerful webhook output letting you tie into additional third-party systems that matter to your organization.

The framework is also configurable to include relevant information from your search in the notification and ships with simple template support.

Learn from your Elasticsearch alert history

A complete history of all alert executions is indexed into Elasticsearch for easy tracking and visualization in Kibana. Are my alerts executing? How often are my conditions being met? What actions were taken?
