Managing Watchesedit

Watcher provides as set of APIs you can use to manage your watches:

Listing Watchesedit

Currently there is not dedicated API for listing the stored watches. However, since Watcher stores its watches in the .watches index, you can list them by executing a search on this index.

Important

You can only perform read actions on the .watches index. You must use the Watcher APIs to create, update, and delete watches. If X-Pack security is enabled, we recommend you only grant users read privileges on the .watches index.

For example, the following returns the first 100 watches:

GET .watches/_search
{
  "size" : 100
}
