Why Certain watchers are disabled

Hi Team,

Please find the attached screenshot and please let me know how to enable the default available watchers in kibana

Kind Regards

By default, when you add a watch it is immediately set to the active state, registered with the appropriate trigger engine, and executed according to its configured trigger.

You can also set a watch to the inactive state. Inactive watches are not registered with a trigger engine and can never be triggered.

To set a watch to the inactive state when you create it, set the active parameter to inactive . To deactivate an existing watch, use the deactivate watch API. To reactivate an inactive watch, use the activate watch API.


PUT _watcher/watch/<watch_id>/_activate

This API enables you to activate a currently inactive watch.

Hope it helps.


You can look at the kibana logs to see why those watches were disabled. Logs would help.

No My question is , there are certain watchers which are in READ ONLY mode how can we enable them
