Watches not writing to wacher history

.watcher-history indices aren't being created and are also missing.
There aren't any errors and action.auto_create_index isn't set anywhere.

You have watches that are working as expected, but .watcher-history is not being populated? What version are you on?

We're on 8.6.
Yes, the watches are working properly.

How are querying for the existence of .watcher-history? Hidden indices like that don't show up in APIs like _cat/indices. And as of 8.0 (I think) watcher history is a datastream. But if you have a user with permissions to see the index, you can still do a query like: GET /.watcher-history-*/_search. Or are you saying that even that kind of query returns nothing?
