Index Search Query

Triggers a workflow on every new event based on a target index (mandatory) and a search query (optional).


Automations based on this trigger will search for new events every 5 minutes.


QueryDefines the search using a Query in the Lucene query string syntax.
Note: It is not advised to query time elements, as the trigger handles this by default. Querying time elements might interfere with the proper execution of the trigger.
Target IndexComma-separated list of data streams, indices, and aliases to search. Supports wildcards (). To search all data streams and indices, use or _all.
