What is ElastAlert?

ElastAlert is a simple framework for alerting on anomalies, spikes, or other patterns of interest from data in Elasticsearch.

How It Works

ElastAlert triggers alerts when alerting rule conditions are met.

  • When ElastAlert sends PagerTree an alert with (event_type === "create"), an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.

Integration Walkthrough

In this integration tutorial we will show you how to send notifications from ElastAlert into PagerTree. The estimated time for this integration is 5 minutes. We assume that you already have a PagerTree and ElastAlert setup (version v0.1.38 or higher) and generally understand how to create rules. If you don’t, make sure to check out the docs.

In PagerTree

  1. Create the integration by clicking the ElastAlert logo.

In ElastAlert

  1. In your ElastAlert rules YAML file add the following, replacing <PagerTree Endpoint URL> with the PagerTree Endpoint URL you copied earlier.

# Alert when the rate of events exceeds a threshold

# (Optional)
# Elasticsearch host
#es_host: localhost

# (Optional)
# Elasticsearch port
#es_port: 9200

# (Required)
# PagerTree Integration URL
pagertree_integration_url:  <PagerTree Endpoint URL>

# (OptionaL) Connect with SSL to Elasticsearch
#use_ssl: True

# (Optional) basic-auth username and password for Elasticsearch
#es_username: someusername
#es_password: somepassword

# (Required)
# Rule name, must be unique
name: pagertree_rule

# (Required)
# Type of alert.
# the frequency rule type alerts when num_events events occur with timeframe time
type: frequency

# (Required)
# Index to search, wildcard supported
index: logstash-*

#doc_type: "golog"

# (Required, frequency specific)
# Alert when this many documents matching the query occur within a timeframe
num_events: 50

# (Required, frequency specific)
# num_events must occur within this amount of time to trigger an alert
  hours: 2

# (Required)
# A list of Elasticsearch filters used for find events
# These filters are joined with AND and nested in a filtered query
# For more info: http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/query-dsl.html
- query:
      query: "@message: *hihi*"

# (Required)
# The alert is use when a match is found
- "pagertree"
  1. Save the rules YAML file

  2. Restart ElastAlert

You have successfully completed the ElastAlert Integration.
