.opendistro-alerting-config not created

Versions (relevant - OpenSearch/Dashboard/Server OS/Browser):


Describe the issue:
.opensearch-alerting-config index and other alerting indices are not created when opensearch is deployed via helm charts


plugins.security.system_indices.enabled: true
plugins.security.system_indices.indices: [".opendistro-alerting-config", ".opendistro-alerting-alert*", ".opendistro-anomaly-results*", ".opendistro-anomaly-detector*", ".opendistro-anomaly-checkpoints", ".opendistro-anomaly-detection-state", ".opendistro-reports-*", ".opendistro-notifications-*", ".opendistro-notebooks", ".opendistro-asynchronous-search-response*"]

@pbagrecha Try this API to see the missing indices.

GET _cat/indices?expand_wildcards=all

Also, be aware that not all indices will be present just after deployment. i.e. alerting indices are created when the first monitor is created.

Hi Pablo, thank you for sharing the api call to list all the indices. I did use that, and that’s how confirmed that the index was indeed not created. Thank you for also confirming that index will be created by creating a monitor as I did observe that behavior.
