If you use a custom webhook for your destination and need to embed JSON in the message body, be sure to escape your quotes:

{
  "message_template": {
    "source": "{ \"text\": \"Monitor {{ctx.monitor.name}} just entered alert status. Please investigate the issue. - Trigger: {{ctx.trigger.name}} - Severity: {{ctx.trigger.severity}} - Period start: {{ctx.periodStart}} - Period end: {{ctx.periodEnd}}\" }"
  }
}

If you want to specify a timezone, you can do so by including a cron expression with a timezone name in the schedule section of your request.

The following example creates a monitor that runs at 12:10 PM Pacific Time on the 1st day of every month.

For a full list of timezone names, refer to Wikipedia. The alerting plugin uses the Java TimeZone class to convert a ZoneId to a valid timezone.


Update monitor

When you update a monitor, include the current version number as a parameter. OpenSearch increments the version number automatically (see the sample response).
