We are trying to configure alerting from OpenDistro Kibana to the 3rd party URL i.e., to Zenoss to generate alerts . I have selected the " Custom webhook " option and have provided the 3rd party URL - “https://******.com/zport/dmd/Events/evconsole_router” however when we create a monitor and trigger alert, We do not see any message going to Zenoss. I have tried sending “test message” as well however no luck.
I have attached the screenshots of the alert configuration. Please note we have checked the port and firewall and confirmed there is no issue with it. Kindly help !!
The OpenDistro documentation on alerting does give some examples specifically, but there are a lot of variables here (is the network blocked between your node and your service, is the API endpoint correct, etc.) - it’s a troubleshooting exercise that is difficult to do remotely with no knowledge of your architecture. I would first confirm that everything is reachable from both places then start working up the complexity chain.
PS I did notice that your original screenshot is a PUT request and second is POST request.
Can you do anything by pointing the webhook at a mock server using a similar network setup? My gut is telling me that the webhook is firing but it isn’t making it to Zenoss or it’s not formed the way Zenoss wants.
