@Qmando hey, I am having the same problem @balijepalli had. I am shipping some logs to an elasticsearch index through logstash and running elastAlert at the same time. all I'm trying to do is test email alerts when the same value of some field occurs more than once, but i keep getting 0 matches. I've just started using elastAlert so bear with me.
This is the command im running "elastalert-test-rule example_frequency.yaml" and this is the filter i specified:
filter:
  • term:
    filed_name: "value"

@Qmando @balijepalli nvm, I'm getting matches now.. but no email alerts :/ I dont care to use email alerts. I just wanna test alerts, so what is the easiest way to test alerts locally?
