saved-search-watcher - Alert on Kibana Saved Searches using Elasticsearch Watcher

Using a search template, the toJson Mustache template tag, the search meta attribute, and a Saved Search, a Watcher can be implemented which will use the Apache Lucene style query from a Saved Search.

This repository provides a concreate example of this method.

NoSpaceships has released this project under the terms of the MIT license.

If you have any issues or feedback, or would like to discuss any requirements you may have, please contact us.

The saved-search-watcher blog post on the NoSpaceships website provides a comprehensive run through of how the Watcher is pieced together, and why each element is required.

Using the Example

The example Watcher exists in the saved-search-watcher.json file.

Navigate to the Dev Tools in the Kibana UI, and use the following request to add the Watcher - pasting the contents of the above file in place of {...}:

PUT _xpack/watch/watcher/system-log-errors
{...}

The Watcher will then be live.

To use the Watcher for specific use cases, review the following:

  • The savedSearchId attribute under the metadata attribute - Set this to be the ID of the Saved Search which should be used.
  • The name attribute under the metadata attribute - Set this to be the Watcher name.
  • Update the search.request.indices attribute under the savedSearchQuery input in the Watcher.
  • Review the Watchers actions, specifically, the send_email action, replace or update this as required.
