"Create watch for real-time job” Checkbox Missing

According to this article: https://www.elastic.co/blog/alerting-on-machine-learning-jobs-in-elasticsearch-v55: "In v5.5, both the Single and Multi-metric jobs have a “Create watch for real-time job” checkbox that appears after you create the job."

I'm running v5.5, but I don't have this option. Does this need to be separately enabled?


In 5.5, you should be able to see the "Create Watch" checkbox providing Watcher for X-Pack is enabled. You can only create a watch for jobs that are running in real-time.

When using the either the Single or Multi-metric wizard, click Create job and let the job run through to completion. Once finished, a checkbox becomes visible to say Continue job real-time. Once this is selected you will be able to create a watch. See image below.

In 6.0, you can also create a Watch when you start any job in real-time from the Job Management page.

Best wishes
