Get Watcher index settingsedit

This API allows a user to retrieve the user-configurable settings for the Watcher internal index (.watches). Only a subset of the index settings—those that are user-configurable—will be shown. This includes:

  • index.auto_expand_replicas
  • index.number_of_replicas

An example of retrieving the Watcher settings:

response = client.watcher.get_settings
puts response
GET /_watcher/settings

The configurable settings can be modified using the Update Watcher index settings API.
