Here is my config.yaml

# This is the folder that contains the rule yaml files
# Any .yaml file will be loaded as a rule
rules_folder: example_rules

# How often ElastAlert will query elasticsearch
# The unit can be anything from weeks to seconds
run_every:
  minutes: 1

# ElastAlert will buffer results from the most recent
# period of time, in case some log sources are not in real time
buffer_time:
  minutes: 15

# The elasticsearch hostname for metadata writeback
# Note that every rule can have it's own elasticsearch host
es_host: search-itmcc-elasticsearch-cluster-47ux565rtlkza7gewdodwdh7b4.us-west-2.es.amazonaws.com

# The elasticsearch port
es_port: 80

aws_region: us-west-2

#boto_profile: default

# Optional URL prefix for elasticsearch
es_url_prefix: elasticsearch

# Connect with SSL to elasticsearch
#use_ssl: True

# Option basic-auth username and password for elasticsearch
#es_username: someusername
#es_password: somepassword

# The index on es_host which is used for metadata storage
# This can be a unmapped index, but it is recommended that you run
# elastalert-create-index to set a mapping
writeback_index: elastalert_status

# If an alert fails for some reason, ElastAlert will retry
# sending the alert until this time period has elapsed
alert_time_limit:
  days: 2

And the error that I get:

Hmm.. you do have aws_region set, which means it should be signing the requests using the instance role. I'm not entirely sure why that's not working. I think adding --es_debug_trace file will let you see if it's actually signing the requests or not.

You could try using a boto profile instead. This will make it look for credentials in ~/.aws/credentials. See http://elastalert.readthedocs.io/en/latest/recipes/signing_requests.html?highlight=aws.

Unrelated, but you probably don't need the es_url_prefix with amazon's ES.

It is like it is not picking the aws_region: us-west-2. If I starting to put in mistakes in the key name or value name, nothing changes, as if it is being ignored. Tried with boto profile too. When I try to run the second command from first install docs ():

$ python setup.py install (runs okay)
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Second command gives error:

Oh, just realized that you need to put aws_region and boto_profile in the RULE yaml and not config.yaml.

Also, I think you need to run apt-get install python-devel to fix the Python.h missing error. But, if setup.py install works fine, you should have all the necessary libraries.

I tried putting aws_region in the rule, and still no luck. --es_debug_trace file create empty file even with --debug and --verbose command parameters

You could put put a print statement here, https://github.com/Yelp/elastalert/blob/master/elastalert/auth.py#L42, to see if the credentials are even getting fetched properly. Like print aws_access_key_id, aws_token

Beyond trying boto_profile, I'm not sure what else to do.

I printed out the aws parameters in the auth file

print '---------------------------------------------------'
print aws_access_key_id
print aws_secret_access_key
print aws_token
print host
print aws_region
print '---------------------------------------------------'

but I still get error:

DavidMuller/aws-requests-auth#15 (comment)

Try upgrading the elasticsearch library to 1.7?

My bad if the library versions are incompatible, I've never tested this feature myself.

No luck with that either. I decided to start from scratch and change the package to 1.7 in requirement.txt, but I run into this error when i run python setup.py install:

Would love to gt this working, what libraries do you currently use in the requirements txt as well as OS, are you using any instance in AWS? Is it ubuntu/rhel/amazon linux etc?

Someone else had this problem, marcan/certbot-external#1 (comment)

Maybe upgrading setuptools will fix this last error. You'll need all the libraries otherwise there will be import errors. The versions are not required to all be exact though.

We are using this on Ubuntu.

You could also try using Docker.

https://github.com/krizsan/elastalert-docker
or https://github.com/fiunchinho/docker-elastalert
or https://www.ivankrizsan.se/2015/10/19/creating-an-elastalert-docker-image-on-docker-hub/

Or if not, definitely use a virtualenv.
http://docs.python-guide.org/en/latest/dev/virtualenvs/
and try installing with pip install -r requirements.txt rather than setup.py install.

Finally got it working, thanks a lot Qmando! I haven't used the docker, but had to update some libraries when I built it on the amazon linux instace:

pip install -U setuptools
pip install -U mock
pip install -U pbr
pip install -U requests-oauthlib

As well as update in requirements.txt

configparser==3.5.0
elasticsearch==1.7.0

I ran into this problem when attempting to run a bucketing search in es (also despite having the "es:*" action on my es domain resource). I was able to resolve it by adding the following to my lambda role. Hope it gives you some ideas...

Effect: Allow
Action:
	- es:ESHttpGet
Resource:
	- !Join [":", ["arn:aws:es", !Ref "AWS::Region", !Ref "AWS::AccountId", "domain/<domain name>/<index name>*/_search"]]
