I’m trying to send an email on an alert but nothing is sent. When I’m checking the logs the only things it returns is :
[2021-02-10T13:36:31,768][DEBUG][c.a.o.a.r.RestExecuteMonitorAction] [tbelin-VirtualBox] POST /_opendistro/_alerting/monitors/_execute

[2021-02-10T13:36:32,581][INFO ][c.a.o.a.m.d.Destination ] [tbelin-VirtualBox] Message published for action name: Email, messageid: Could not connect to SMTP host: smtp. gmail. com, port: 465, statuscode: 1
My sender is set up like this:
email: “myemailtest @gmail.com”
host: “smtp. gmail. com”
I have, as the guide told me, add those two to the keystore with opendistro.alerting.destination.email.email_alert.username as “email@example.com” and
opendistro.alerting.destination.email.email_alert.password with the password of that gmail account.
I have tried to connect that gmail account with openssl and everything was working as attended. I have also check on wireshark if I could see more info and after the smtp.gmail.com server exchange his certificate, my host rises a packet with “Alert (Level: Fatal, Description: Certificate Unknown)”. On elasticsearch.yml, I have put “opendistro_security.disabled: true”.
Is there anything I have misunderstood on the configuration guide?
