Watcher: Internal Server Error

(Student) #1

Whenever I try to execute a watch i get a Watcher : Internal server error.

Also when I try to test the watch using development tools ,
i get following error

"error": {
"root_cause": [
"type": "null_pointer_exception",
"reason": null
"type": "null_pointer_exception",
"reason": null
"status": 500

is there any log file output that you can share or are you running on a cloud instance?

This is the error I get on the console when I try to execute any watch.

Sorry for not being clear. I meant in the elasticsearch logfile, not the kibana one.

(Alexander Reelsen) #5

also which elasticsearch version are you on?

(Student) #6

The log file output is too big to paste in here. I have uploaded the file on google drive. Here's the link:

My elasticsearch version is 6.2.3

can you run GET _xpack/watcher/stats and check if watcher is marked as stopped? If so, can you start watcher manually and see if you can run watcher then?


(Student) #8

The watcher was marked manually stopped. Manually starting it did the job.
Thanks a lot.

(Alexander Reelsen) #9

Thanks for reporting back. The error message is confusing though. This will be changed in 6.3 though, as a change about starting/stopping watcher (to reduce the code running in additional threads) will be included.
