How can I delete acknowledged trigger alerts that are in Kibana?


I need to know how I can delete triggered alerts that are already acknowledged in Kibana?

Any help appreciated.



From UI, you can use filters on the right top corner. If you want to complete delete acknowledged alerts, you can delete those documents from the .opendistro-alerting-alert* indices. All the alerts are stored in the .opendistro-alerting-alert* indices.

Hi @skkosuri-amzn

I performed the DELETE /.opendistro-alerting-alert* to delete the acknowledged alerts from within Kibana, but the events keep getting generated over and over for same events.

Any reason why?

Any way to stop the alerts?

Any info appreciated!



Hi @FREDDIE2020 Looks like its assuming that alert is not acknowledged. If there is acknowledge alert, new alert wont be created continuously.
