Getting started with Signals Alerting for Elasticsearch

Signals Alerting for Elasticsearch is distributed as part of Search Guard. To use Signals, you just need to install the Search Guard plugin for Elasticsearch and Kibana.

Signals is right now in Beta state. At the moment, it is only available for Elasticsearch 7.3.2, 7.4.0, 7.4.1, 7.4.2 and 7.5.0.

The technical preview includes both Signals and Search Guard, and can be installed the same way you would install Search Guard and the Search Guard Kibana plugin.
