Problem with email alerts


I’m trying to send notifications using email as destination but it doesn’t work. The documentation is not clear…
I configured everything : senders, recipients and elasticsearch keystore and i don’t get any notification. Notifications using slack are working properly but email notifications are not!
Please if i’m going to use gmail smtp server what is the configuration that i need to setup?
Are the “Email address” in the senders configuration and “./bin/elasticsearch-keystore add<sender_name>.username” the same?

Hi @opendistro1,

That’s correct, your<sender_name>.username value in this case is your email address.

Could you provide some more information. What does your sender configuration look like (smtp host, port, etc.)? Also, what do you see in the elasticsearch.log when the notification is being sent?
