Cannot set property 'text' of undefined"

Ran into an issue where I couldn't set up an email action on a watch in Kibana 6.1.1 and was getting this error in the kibana log:

Looks like this might be fixed by changing line 48 of email_action.js from:
optionalFields.body.text = this.body;
to:
optionalFields.body = this.body;

and line 78 from:
optionalFields.body = json.actionJson.email.body.text;
to:
optionalFields.body = json.actionJson.email.body;

:slight_smile:

Apparently this was fixed in 6.1.2. Thanks!
