Debugging Standalone alerting Plugin Installation


I was just trying to test out Stand alone Alerting on top of our existing ELK stack. The elasticsearch plugin installed successfully and so is the Kibana Alerting plugin, but I do not see the Alerting menu created in Kibana nor do I see the .opendistro indices. I have disabled any of the X-Pack features we had enabled but no luck still. Any advice on debugging? I don’t see anything in either elasticsearch or kibana logs.

Does alerting need any other plugins like Security also?
