How to rebuild .watches

Hi Team,
we had couple of ES nodes failure last week and after that we rebuild most of the indexes. i closed .watches index that time because shards were missing. Now ES is up and running but watcher is not.

I tried to open .watches index but it says shards are missing (UNASSIGNED) and cluster becomes red. I tried to delete the .watches index but got below error:

"error": "This endpoint is not supported for DELETE on .watches index.",
"status": 400

How can i rebuild .watches index now? In a post i read to restart watcher, how to to that?

Thanks & Regards,

Please respond, it's important. All alerts are blocked for now.


the troubleshooting section has some information how to delete the watches index if necessary. Be sure you have set true in your elasticsearch.yml file
