Watchers Issue(S)


(Carl) #1

While attempting to setup Watchers received a 500 error in Kibana. Log entry from Kibana:

Hi Carl, did you just upgrade from 5.x by any chance? If so, then your problem may be similar to the one described in ES 5.4 => 6.0 Upgrade. Watcher Issues. Can you take a look there and let me know if it helps?

Thanks,
CJ

Cj,

That did the trick. Not sure how I missed it in my Googlefu search. We are up and running. Again, thanks for the assist.
