Add scheduled reporting without restarting elasticsearch


Hello, I'm very new with elasticsearch/kibana but I have a question about scheduled reporting.

If I have understood the documentation correct then in order to be able to send email for a report that is generated in Kibana and to use a Watcher to send that report that specific email must be added/configured in the elasticsearch.yml

And when modifying this config the elastic service must be restarted.

Source: "Use the email action to send email notifications. To send email, you must configure at least one email account in elasticsearch.yml ."

This feels strange, if I want to add another user/email that can get reports I must first configure it in the elasticsearch.yml and then the service must be restarted? Is there no other way to get emails with reports?

Or maybe I simply misunderstood the documentation.
