Well suited scenarios:
Whenever we would like to monitor the infrastructure (small or big), this elastic search log observer provides the detailed view of logs at different levels and triggers the alert accordingly.
Less appropriate scenarios:
When a specific user privilege wants to see the logs only at one level (not deep dive), it does not provide that fine grained permission.
