Illegal State Exception while adding watcher to ES 5.1.2 using X-Pack


(Prateek Sharma) #1

Hi,

I have been trying to add a watcher on ES 5.1.2 using X-pack. I am getting IllegalStateException while using this payload for PUT _xpack/watcher/watch/first_watcher:

{
"trigger": {
"schedule": {
"interval": "10s"
}
},
"input": {
"search": {
"request": {
"indices": ["logstash-*"],
"body": {
"query": {
"bool": {
"must": [{
"match": {
"actionType": "SOME_ACTION_TYPE"
}
}, {
"range": {
"@timestamp": {
"gte": "now-1d",
"lt": "now"
}
}
}]
}
}
}
}
}
},
"condition": {
"compare": {
"ctx.payload.hits.total": {
"gt": 0
}
}
},
"actions": {
"send_email": {
"email": {
"to": "user@account.com",
"subject": "Notification Details",
"body": "Result: \n Notifications Sent: {{ctx.payload.hits.hits[0].sentCount}}, \n Time Taken: {{ctx.payload.hits.hits[0].timeTaken}}"
}
}
}
}

Excetion on elastic search logs:

Response:

{
"error": {
"root_cause": [{
"type": "illegal_state_exception",
"reason": "not started"
}],
"type": "illegal_state_exception",
"reason": "not started"
},
"status": 500
}

I have tried reindexing also, but still I am getting the same error.

Hey,

have you made sure that watcher is start? You can start watcher using the start API.

However there might be a reason why starting does not work - maybe one of the required shards is not ready or closed. Can you run this as well

GET _cat/indices/.watch*,.triggered*?v

Thanks.
