Dear Opendistro community,
I have the same issue that is posted here:
I upgraded our OpenDistro system which is running under Ubuntu 18.04. So thanks for the implemented email function, this was urgently needed by some users
The email function (Destination) is missing on my system.
Here are the current installed packages:
ii opendistro-alerting 22.214.171.124-1
ii opendistro-anomaly-detection 126.96.36.199-1
ii opendistroforelasticsearch 1.10.1-1
ii opendistroforelasticsearch-kibana 1.9.0
The “email” option is missing in the dropdown menu. But it is not explained how to solve it…
I’m using 7.8.0 and kibana is running from tarball.
I would appreciate your support
I wrote my solution there
I updated the “opendistroforelasticsearch-kibana” package via apt. The package was not updated before so the email option was missing.
I was confused about the versions, and didn’t noticed that “alerting email” was not supported in version 7.8.0… For new deployments I will use current version, but for already deployed Opendistros finally we created a solution using webhook and email python script…
Great to hear that everything is working now. Could you provide your python script? Maybe this is something to share with the community.
