Logging the message of an alert to InfluxDB



In the following thread, Nathaniel indicates that it is possible to log the alert message to InfluxDB as of Kapacitor 1.1. However, I don’t see a way to do this. Can anyone help?




@sloach Have you looked at the InfluxDBOut() node?


Yeah, I see it is “messageField”. I was looking at an old version of the docs.

As an aside, have you guys noticed that Google searches for your documentation almost always returns old versions? I have gotten bitten by this quite a bit.




@sloach Yeah. This has been a long standing issue. We display a modal at the top of the page if the docs you are reading aren’t from the current version. Did you see that on those older docs?


No, but I should have. :slight_smile:
